About the Event
Ijams Night Hikes are recommended for ages 6 and up
Description: Explore Ijams Nature Center in a new light, or perhaps no light. Ijams Night Hikes get you out on the trails to experience the night using all of your senses. Each walk includes night games and activities as well as exploration for nocturnal creatures. Search for salamanders using the ears of a bat, or call for owls while staying as silent as possible. You never know what you might find or experience on a fun night hike at Ijams.
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.
Directions: This Ijams Night Hike meets at the Ijams Nature Center outdoor pavilion at the main parking lot.
