Sounds of Spring Night Hike at New Canaan Nature Center

Saturday, April 24th
Sessions at 5:00 P.M. and 6:30 P.M.

Come explore the magic of spring and Earth Week with us! We’ll visit the Nature Center’s vernal pools and ponds to listen for the peeps and croaks of frogs and other amphibians that let us know spring has fully arrived! We’ll also journey through the woods and into the meadows in search of some awesome invertebrates, birds, and bats. If we’re super lucky, we might even get a chance to spot a critter or two! Join our Naturalists for this fun, interactive and earth aware hike to learn why these species are so important to our local ecosystem. Program will include an interactive hike and hands-on exploration of the nature center’s ponds and vernal pools.

Please arrive promptly at the start of your chosen time slot and sign in at our Check In Table behind the Visitor Center.
