A Bump in the Night

When darkness envelops the landscape and human vision fails, the other four senses suddenly become alert. As imaginations run wild, night sounds often can send chills up the spine and start a heart pounding.

Come to Jennings Environmental Education Center on Sunday, October 30 at 7:00 p.m. for a listen to these nocturnal noises and a look at what makes them.

An indoor presentation will focus on the folklore, legends and stories that were created to give meaning to unfamiliar sounds, and to explain why some animals come out only at night. 

The presentation will be followed by an outdoor walk into the forest haunts of these nocturnal creatures to learn about their sensory adaptations and to experience how night affects our own five senses.

(Pre-registration is not required for this free program, but do dress appropriately and plan to be outdoors in the dark forest for about an hour.)
