Get a new perspective of Pepperwood – after dark! We’ll gather just as the sun sets and the moon rises to embark on an adventurous hike to explore the local “nightlife”. Along our hike we’ll look and listen for signs of our often-nocturnal neighbors such as bats, foxes, coyotes, and owls. Our hike will take us to a ridge with expansive views of the night sky, where we can appreciate the beauty of nature under the light of the glorious full moon. You are invited to pack a picnic dinner to enjoy on the ridge (perhaps hot soup in a thermos to help keep you warm!), under the bright light of the moon. We encourage minimal use of flashlights during this adventure, to protect our “night vision” and create a more immersive experience. The dark is much less spooky when you are among good company! 

Ease of Access/Hike level: This event includes a hike of up to 2 miles of moderate hiking level, in dark lighting conditions. We will be traveling on an established trail over varied terrain with inclines and some uneven surfaces. Bathrooms and water are available at the event meeting location. 

Weather & Cancellations: Rain cancels this event. In the case of cancellation, registrants will be notified via email. 

Though we love dogs, pets are not allowed on the reserve. When visiting Pepperwood, please leave pets at home for their wellbeing and that of our wildlife. Thank you.

Please, no smoking at Pepperwood.

COVID Protocols: Masks are not required. Please practice good health hygiene. If you do not feel well, please do not attend.
