Park in the Dark at the Arboretum --- June-October 2014

Night time is special at the Arboretum – the people and cars are gone, and the nocturnal animals move about. Night hikes are a chance for us to explore our senses, search for crepuscular and nocturnal movements in the forest and learn about night-related animal adaptations.

June 14th 8:00 - 9:30pm
June 28th 8:00 - 9:30pm

Cost is $8/person. We will meet in front of the Graham Visitor Center.
