About the event
How often do kids get to see and learn about the unique creatures of nature that come out only after dark? Join our experienced instructors Boaz and Will in our upcoming class series, Nocturnal Journeys!
Nighttime offers a new and little-seen perspective on the ecosystems, plants and animals around us. We’ll explore various destinations in the San Gabriel Valley mountains after dark in pursuit of these night dwellers. Expect a safe, fun experience as we learn together about nocturnal lifeforms, observe them in their natural habitat, and enjoy a community outing together.
