A Special Autumn Night Walk!

When: October 9, 2021, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: Shaver's Creek Environmental Center, Petersburg, PA
Add to Calendar: iCal | Google

Get to know the animals that wake up when you go to sleep! Join Shaver’s Creek naturalist, Eva Hirsch, and Long-Term Ecological Reflections Project writer, Rebecca Hirsch, for a free exploration of the nocturnal world geared toward kids. The session will start with a reading of Rebecca’s picture book, Night Creatures: Animals That Swoop, Crawl, and Creep while You Sleep. Participants will learn how owls and other nocturnal animals use sound to navigate the night. Then, we’ll take a night walk on one of the trails. Bring a pair of sturdy shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and your curiosity about the world of the night!

This event will take place at Shaver’s Creek. When you arrive, someone will greet you outside the visitor center. Please be aware that masking is required. You will be asked to sign a participation waiver.
