The rhythms, sounds, and active wildlife are totally different at night, so join us for a night hike at Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland hills! We’ll find spiders, moths, and nocturnal creatures like scorpions that glow under UV light. Bring your headlamp, drinking water, warm layers, and hiking attire. We’ll have UV flashlights you can borrow or purchase.

Cost: Free! $20 suggested donation.
