Creatures of the Night!

Wednesday, November 7, 2012Creatures of the Night

What are the things that go bump in the night?Do they thrill you, or chill you, or give you a fright? And what in the world are they doing out there?Don’t they know it’s late? Do they even care? You might prefer the daylight, while outdoors you roam.But to some Michigan wildlife, the night feels right at home. 

With their unique adaptations, odd hours, and strange sounds, nocturnal animals are worth some investigation. Parents, grandparents, and adult mentors, bring your youngster(s) to shed some light on the elusive creatures of the night. Learn about the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge’s nocturnal animals and their adaptations for living in the dark and engage your senses on a guided hike at Humbug Marsh to discover what dwells in the forest after the sun goes down. 





This family-friendly, hour long program will begin at 7:00pm at the Humbug Marsh Unit of the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge located at 5437 West Jefferson Avenue, in Trenton, Michigan. 



Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Flashlights with RED lights are encouraged.
