Park in the Dark at the Washington Park Arboretum

Calendar/Event Details

Night time is special at the Arboretum – the people and cars are gone, and the nocturnal animals move about. Night hikes are a chance for us to explore our senses, search for crepuscular and nocturnal movements in the forest and learn about night-related animal adaptations. Programs are designed for youth ages 5-12 and their caregivers.

All night hikes meet at the Graham Visitors Center (2300 Arboretum Dr E).

Cost: $15 – First child
$5 – Each additional child
FREE – Adults accompanied by children

Pre-registration is required and each person attending must have a space reserved.
