When the sun sets, not all of nature goes to sleep. Some parts of the natural world are active in the cool darkness of night. Join docents Paul Billig and Katherine Greene as you witness the changes that occur along the Stevens Creek Nature Trail as day moves into night. The hike begins with a walk down the Canyon Trail where you’ll stop to enjoy the dinner you bring as darkness descends. Then using your flashlight, you’ll be looking as well as listening for the sights and sounds of nature at night. Red filters for your flashlight will be provided for those who need them. The hike will cover 3.5 miles with a 400-foot elevation gain. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after August 16.
Meet at the Monte Bello Preserve parking lot located on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
Preregistration is required. Find out more at the MROSD page for this event.
