November: Night Explorations (Grades 3-5)

Tennant Lake Interpretive Center

It’s time to bundle up, grab your flashlights and headlamps, and awaken your senses to experience the beauty and mystery of nature at night! Our night hike will take us to Tennant Lake's thriving wetland area where we’ll navigate our way through cattails and along meandering trails above this aquatic habitat. We will discover the impressive adaptations of nocturnal animals and use our own human adaptation skills to search for critters who are active at night. Sound mapping and scent tracking will be an exciting part of our journey as we make our way along the Tennant Lake boardwalks, learning about the importance of marsh habitats and experiencing its diversity with our enlivened senses. We'll even try to trap marsh gas and light it afire!

Cost: $55
