Don’t be afraid of the dark, the nocturnal creatures sure aren’t! Hoo-hoo-hoo is in that tree? Come explore nature at night and learn about your nocturnal neighbours, including the sights and sounds you may not normally experience in the daytime.
Feel free to bring a flashlight or headlamp, we may ask for you to turn it off at points. We have red light flashlights for viewing of wildlife, to not disrupt their habits or eyesight.
Dress for the weather. This is a rain, snow, or shine event unless severe weather is in the forecast. Consider bringing good winter boots, crampons/boot spikes, and/or a walking stick.

Difficult. This program could involve steep hills, uneven pathways, and greater than two kilometres of travelling in a dark forest. Trails may become icy or snow-covered. If so, we will modify our route to find the safest path possible.
