Have you ever wondered what goes on in our woods after dark? Lions and tigers and bears, oh my? Perhaps not (at least not lions and tigers...), but the natural world does keep much of its excitement for after sunset. The last Friday in August, the Harriers will set out on a lamplit hike in Hancock, tuning our senses to whatever may be stirring in the cooler air of dusk. We'll take a close look at moths coming to light and learn a little about their natural history, search for the roosting-sites of birds, and listen for the footfalls of our more secretive mammals.
After the excursion, we'll return to the Harris Center for a short film (a documentary...no, of course we can't tell you!). Root beer floats and popcorn are on the house, and we'll send you home to bed with eyes as wide as flying squirrels'! Meet at 8 pm at the Harris Center (long sleeves and bug spray may still be in order), and we'll finish up by 10:15.
The event is sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, and we welcome kids and families who are new to the Harriers! R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll hope to see you there!
