Brave the dark of the night in the Dunes of the Crane Wildlife Refuge! We start with an introduction to night sounds, so you are prepared to identify the sounds you will hear, then we hike silently through the darkness, letting our ears make up for our lack of sight. What will you hear? Frogs? Owls? Foxes? Who knows! Debrief and relax with a drink around the campfire to wrap up the evening’s adventure.
Please note: The starting location for the hike will be emailed to participants at the address provided upon registration at least 24 hours in advance. We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand (which makes for a more strenuous hike), for approximately 3-3½ miles. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and bring along a water bottle. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp, but there will be portions of the night where we will ask for complete darkness.
