Creatures of the Night


At sunset, when darkness falls, we usually go inside, turn on the lights, and engage in our nightly activities. Outside, however, nocturnal creatures awaken from their daytime slumber and begin their nightly activities. David Rosen, wildlife photographer, will help you explore the night and discover what critters are going about their business in the darkness. On this 1-2 mile walk, we will discuss what types of nocturnal critters live in the area and learn about their amazing adaptations, try some predator calling (making sounds that may attract foxes, coyotes, etc.), listen for owls and try to get them to respond to recorded calls, practice moving stealthily through the night, and talk about all the cool things we find along the way. Rain cancels. Responsible 9-year-olds+ welcome. Contact ARC to sign up and for meeting location (Coloma area). or 530-621-1224.
