Join us for a series of twilight nature-discovery programs. The whole family will enjoy a nature hike followed by a campfire treat.

 

Howling at the Moon
July 11, 2014
That beacon of the night lights up the darkness, but how much do you really know about the moon? Explore moon myths and discover what really goes on during the full moon. Do crazy things really happen the evenings of the full moon? We’ll see for ourselves on a moonlit walk. Then we head back to the amphitheater for campfire treats.

Twilight Travelers
July 25, 20143
As your bedtime approaches, discover the world of animals that are active during twilight. We'll walk Wehr's trails to learn about these crepuscular critters, such as deer and raccoon. To end the program, we'll gather 'round the fire pit for a campfire treat.

Night Flyers

Things don’t always go bump in the night--sometimes they flutter and fly. This lively campfire program highlights bats, owls, flying squirrels, and other night fliers. Take a short hike to explore the habitats of Wehr under the cover of darkness. Campfire treats will be served.
