Nighttime Nature Walks

The hours just before and after sunset are when nocturnal wildlife is most active.  Join Magnuson Nature Educators to discover just “whoo” is up and about in the wetlands!  Each walk starts with a short presentation on its special theme, followed by some exciting nighttime nature detective work!  We keep a pace that is comfortable for children, and supply binoculars and other exploration supplies for children and adults. Please bring a small flashlight with you.
