Course Description

Gain a new perspective on familiar settings with the chance to see what happens in the Arboretum at night when no one is around. Whether the moon is peeking through the clouds or the stars are shining freely, a fall evening reveals a captivating symphony of sounds and mysterious spaces as we hope to spot wildlife darting through the darkness. During our hike we will find out how animals are adapted for the night and how they prepare for winter,  and we’ll enjoy the magic of crisp fall air and crackling leaves as we hike through the woods.
