CAMDEN — Merryspring Nature Center will host a night hike for families and children on Saturday, August 15, at 8 p.m.

“After the sun goes down, the natural world is still awake!” said Merryspring, in a news release.

This program will lead guests around Merryspring at dusk to discover nighttime ecology. The guided tour will allow guests to discover what happens at at night, including listening for nighttime birds and owls, watching for crepuscular and nocturnal mammals, and looking for and detecting bats.
