Creatures of the Night

September 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

- Free

Join Clifton Institute Executive Director Bert Harris to look and listen for creatures of the night! We’ll start by listening to the evening chorus of cicadas and birds. Then we will take a gentle walk through fields and woods to look for nocturnal animals. Late summer is an ideal time to observe several species of katydids and crickets. We will also look for beavers, reptiles and amphibians, and other animals. Back at the farm house we will see what kinds of moths and beetles we can attract with black lights. We hope to see you there!

Weather policy: Rain or shine except in case of extreme weather (e.g. thunderstorm or significant snow fall)
