Join naturalists from the California Center for Natural History on a creepy-crawly night hike at Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland hills. We’ll find spiders, moths, and night-dwelling creatures that glow under UV light.  Bring your headlamp, drinking water, warm layers, and sturdy hiking shoes. Please no pets on this walk!

We have TWO dates available: Friday, October 28th, and Monday, October 31st. Both go from 8pm to 9:30pm.

We'll have UV flashlights available for a deposit of $10. 

Cost: Free, $20 suggested donation. Space is limited and registration is required! CLICK HERE to reserve your spot. Only pre-registered attendees will receive an informational email with our specific meeting location.
