Guided Night Hike - FULL

Registration is FULL for this program. Please check out "Habitat Gardens at Twilight" on Thursday, July 19th:

In celebration of Night Festival, join us for a night hike geared towards learning about our nocturnal world. We will meet at the Nature Center then head out to Hawk's View Overlook. After sunset, we will discover the mysteries of bio-luminescence, night vision, and what wildlife emerges at dark.

This hike will be 3.2 miles roundtrip with varried terrain and moderate inclines. Adults and kids ages 12 and up welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring a flashlight (red spectrum lights when possible). Though Ruffner loves having leashed dogs on the trails, please leave your furry friends at home for our Guided Hikes.  

Registration is required for this program and space is limited.

As a nonprofit nature preserve, many of Ruffner Mountain's free public programs have limited capacity. For this reason, we ask that you give advanced notice if your plans change and you are unable to attend this program. We will make your space available for another participant.
