Guided Nature Tour – The NIGHT HIKE is back!

August 18, 2020 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The sun will set as we walk Russell Forest trails. Let’s listen to the evening sounds slowly turn into nighttime noises. The forest settles into a different rhythm at night. BE THERE TO FEEL IT! As the light dims, we will be in the woods identifying the variety of plant and animal life we discover. This energetic hike will offer both learning and exercise. Insect repellent will be provided – bring your own flashlight, drinking water, and comfortable shoes. Appropriate for participants ages 5+.


REGISTRATION REQUIRED! There is a $10 fee for this program. Please contact our Naturalist at 256-496-2710 or [email protected] to inquire and to register.

We recommend that you have a moderate fitness level and that you are able to stand or walk for at least two hours. Walking pace will be relaxed with frequent stops. Comfortable, seasonally appropriate clothing and shoes are advised. You may also want to bring bottled water and insect repellent. Binoculars and cameras are welcome. Remember, there are no bathrooms on the Forest Trails.
