Experience a different kind of nightlife!

Mark your calendar to join Ijams Nature Center for an evening celebrating the wonder of nature at night, and a very special place where hundreds of thousands of visitors annually come to enjoy it.

Twilight at Ijams, presented by Clayton, is a fundraiser focused on all the things that make this nonprofit nature center special. From night hikers seeomg fireflies flit through the forest, to a child and his grandmother seeing a turtle on the trails, to a camper catching and learning about tadpoles, Ijams is here because you believe nature is important.

Make plans to join your friends at a magical evening for a fabulous cause. You’ll enjoy fresh, delicious food, a signature cocktail, a silent auction, a wonderful performance from The Streamliners, dancing, and more! The deadline to get tickets is Aug. 31.

Dress is garden party casual; carpooling is encouraged.
