When the sky grows dark, the forests come alive with nocturnal animals. On these naturalist-guided hikes, we'll walk through the shadowy darkness and learn all about the denizens of the dark. The hikes are open to all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is $2 per person or $8 per family of 4 or more. To register, call 630-444-3190. Be there, if you dare!
