Wetlands and Whip-poor-wills


Often heard but seldom observed, the whip-poor-will chants its name on summer nights. We’ll begin with a moderate hike through the woods to a beautiful wetland, home to an abundance of wildlife and unusual plants. As we wind our way back in the twilight, we’ll stop to listen for this elusive bird.

This free event is best suited for ages 12 and older. Meet at the Hauser Nature Center to carpool to site.
