Equinox Preserve Night Walk

Equinox Preserve Family Night Hike

Over 70% of the animals living on the Equinox Preserve are nocturnal, hunting for food and shelter after the sun has gone down.  How are these animals able to survive?  What special adaptations allow them to hunt, travel and survive at night?

Leave your flashlights behind and join Equinox Preserve Steward Rick LaDue and the Green Mountain Club’s Young Adventurers Club for this family-friendly foray into the nocturnal world of Mt Equinox.  Learn about special adaptations of deer, owls, shrews, flying squirrels and a number of other creatures.  Most importantly, experience all the ways humans are also adapted to survive at night.  All activities are kid-friendly and appropriate for ages 3-9.

We will meet on November 8, at 7 pm at the Red Gate parking lot on West Union St in Manchester for this exciting, non-scary adventure.  Participants must pre-register with either Rick at 366-1400 (rick@equinoxpreservationtrust.org) or Jason of GMC’s Young Adventurers Club at 681-6342 (jpergament@burrburton.org).  Space is limited so please register early!
