Have you ever wondered if animals go to sleep at night? Who might be walking around looking for something to eat? What can we see and hear at night that we cannot experience during the day?
Can we see a beaver swimming in the wetlands or an owl catching a mouse? Is it different to walk trails with only the moon for light?
The Cache Creek Conservancy will answer those questions and more at a special program from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14. A guided hike will be held at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve to hear nature’s nighttime sounds. With a full moon rising, visitors will enjoy an easy walk along the trails to listen and observe a different aspect of the outdoor world. Many of the animals that live in this area are nocturnal, and visitors should expect to hear and see some of them.
This program is appropriate for both children and adults. There is no charge although donations are always appreciated. Please bring your own drinking water and wear warm clothes. Remember that dogs are not allowed on the preserve.
The Cache Creek Nature Preserve is at 34199 County Road 20 in Woodland. For more information, call 530-661-1070 or email [email protected].
