Who goes hoot in the night? Who might we find fluttering around the porch light? During this family-friendly evening adventure, join Pepperwood staff and Stewards to learn about some of the local creatures who are active at dusk and nighttime. We will start with a few activities to spark our curiosity and introduce some of the cast of night characters, then we will watch the sunset as we embark on a walk to listen and look for signs of wildlife. We will search for fascinating bats, moths, owls, scorpions, and more – and get to know them through stories and observation. Along the way, we can also enjoy the beauty of the evening sky.

This event will include an easy to moderate walk of less than 1.5 miles at a slow pace. Backpacks are welcome, but no strollers please.

Please note: All events will follow current regional health safety guidelines. Please bring a mask – we will require masks to be worn indoors during this event (this includes in the bathrooms), regardless of vaccination status. Masks are not required while outdoors. Please practice good hand washing hygiene, and physical distancing when possible. If you do not feel well, please do not attend.
