Creatures of the Night

McFarland Park, Story County

Friday, October 27, 2023

Attention all creepy, crawly, creatures of the night! Embark on an exciting night hike through the woods learning about Iowa animal tracks and creatures of the night. Each group will get a special black light flashlight to use to find glowing animal tracks, and will navigate the woods by full moon light as well. End the evening by relaxing by a campfire and enjoying the full moon. Cost is $5 per family -- register by family as a whole.

**Accessibility: Glowing tracks will be set along an ADA accessible trail in addition to a woodland trail. Regular flashlights will be available for those needing lighter conditions.

Register by October 25 at 4:00 PM.

Unless otherwise stated, refunds can be issued less a $5.00 processing fee per event for cancellations prior to the registration deadline. No refunds will be made after the registration deadline. To cancel a registration, please call (515) 232-2516.
