As night falls, the places we spend time outdoors can feel like a very different place. Familiar trails melt into shadows and the daytime soundscape is replaced with things that go bump in the night as nocturnal creatures come out to play.

Join the Elkhart County Parks as we lift night’s veil to reveal the hidden lives of these creatures of the night, from spiders weaving webs to bats on the wing.

In May, join us for a walkabout at Waterford Wetlands scanning the marshy edges for beavers, muskrats, otters, and other bog-dwellers hidden within.

Come experience the sounds of tail-slaps, critter chirps, and learn how to spot the signs of wetland mammals mucking about.

NOTE – This program includes a 1.5-mile hike under quiet conditions listening for wildlife, and may not be suitable for younger children.
