Do you wonder what it’s like to hike in Sonoma County Regional Parks at night? Join us for this exclusive evening series as we explore the changes and sensations the darkness brings. Engage with the beautiful and often unseen world of this park, learn about nocturnal animals, view the vast expanse of stars in the night sky, and watch the sun set below the horizon. 

These nocturnal flying mammals may have a bad reputation, but bats are a key part of healthy ecosystems and have fascinating adaptations. Come out for an educational, interactive evening all about these animals – we may even see them flying around!

The cost is $5 for in-county residents and $7 for out-of-county attendees. For more information, contact Elizabeth Bentz at Elizabeth.Bentz@sonoma-county.org. Registration required.
