Do you dare discover nature at night? What goes bump or whooo or eek in the dark? The who, what, where, when, and how of the creatures of the night will amaze you!

marshmallow on stick in flamesEat s’mores at the campfire and make some discoveries at the experiment stations. Take a short walk on a luminary-lit trail including a labrynith. Listen to storyteller Rebecca Lesko share nature stories of the first bat, night, and fire. Play a game to test your echolocation abilities. Then head indoors to meet some live nocturnal animals. Next the real fun begins in the moonlight! Take a guided sensory walk. Gaze through a telescope. Listen for owls. For those who want to stay after 8:30 pm, we’ll play flashlight tag or kick-the-can in the field.

During the live animal program by Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center, you’ll meet nocturnal PWC_skunkINarmsanimals. A Barn Owl (pictured above), skunk, opossum, and others will thrill everyone. Kathy and Eric Uhler have been rescuing wildlife since 1983. Pocono Wildlife website

Next in the moonlight you’ll explore nature on a guided sensory walk with naturalist Rebecca Lesko, gaze through a telescope at celestial objects, or listen for owls around the campfire.
