Join the Nature Institute on a night hike through the woods! On the trails of the Mississippi Sanctuary and Olin Nature Preserve the terrain is light to moderate (may include some elevation change) and is appropriate for families. You can expect the hike to be about 2 miles, and it will include stops along the way. Be on time! The hike leaves promptly at either 8 pm in warmer months or 7:30 pm in colder months! Meet in front of the Talahi Lodge- event could be cancelled due to bad weather. Pre-registration is required! Register HERE!

Keep an eye out for nocturnal animals like owls, white-tailed deer, raccoons, opossums, and more! Dress for the weather and enjoy the full moon!
