Do things that go “bump in the night” put you on edge? Do you know what goes on after dark in the wilds of Delaware County?
Here’s a chance for your family to open your eyes and ears to that experience by visiting the Ohio Wildlife Center after the lights go out for a Family Night Hike. Find out what animals love things a little bit darker.
Experience the magic of frogs singing, owls hooting, and lightning bugs flashing. You might be lucky enough to see our resident doe and her fawn. And, if the weather is right, we will roast marshmallows under the light of the moon.
Also get up close with one or more of the Center’s nocturnal Animal Ambassadors. In August, that will mean the Ohio Wildlife Center’s Brown Bat, Luna.
Please dress in proper shoes and wear layers for activities both inside and outside.
There are two Family Night Hikes remaining this year. On August 15 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM, it’s a Full Moon Hike. Then, on October 11 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, the theme is Owls.
To register, visit the Family Night Hikes page on the Ohio Wildlife Center website here. The Center is located at 6131 Cook Road in Powell.
