Experience the World of Nocturnal Animals

You’ve learned about birds and adaptations in school and maybe even been on the trails to see them. That was during the day; what about birds who fly and hunt at night? Investigate some owl artifacts and then get an introduction to local nocturnal owls: great-horned, barred and screech. Plus learn about the other animals out and about from dusk to dawn, incluing mammals, amphibians and insects.

Then, take a walk on the dark side… in a group and led by a Teacher Naturalist, you will explore what it is like to be a nocturnal animal.  What do you see?  What do you hear?  How is it the same or different than the way a nocturnal animal experiences the night? We will try to call for owls and we will listen for other nocturnal animals too. 

Wrap-up the night with some cozy socializing over cookies and cocoa!
