About the Event

Ijams Night Hikes are recommended for ages 6 and up

Description: Explore Ijams Nature Center in a new light, Ultraviolet light! Join a naturalist as we explore glowing lichen, search for scorpions, and discover what else might glow in the nocturnal world. UV flashlights will be provided for each participant, and istructions will be given regarding their use. Who knows what we will discover together, maybe even some surprises left by an April Fools jokester. 

Materials Participants Should Bring: Good walking shoes, water, flashlight, and weather appropriate clothes

Information to Note: This is a night hike that covers trails with roots and rocks. Participants should be prepared to walk upwards of a mile in low light conditions. As it is April Fools there may be jokes, but no pranks will be allowed meant to harm or frighten participants.

Directions: This Ijams Night Hike meets at the Ijams Nature Center outdoor pavilion at the main parking lot. 

Please check your junk mail folder the day before this program if you have not received an email containing program details.
