Nocturnal Animals Program at the Refuge
Refuge walk at sunset
As daylight turns to darkness, the evening hours offer new ways to experience wildlife! On Friday, September 6, 2019 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm, come join experts from Viterbo University, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Midwest Fisheries Center and the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge to take an informal walk on the Visitor Center trails during twilight hours. People of all ages are invited to enjoy for this free program. As the sun goes down, we’ll use our senses to discover plants, insects, and birds and learn about how these organisms relate to fish in the Mississippi River. Registration is required and is limited to 35 people. Registration will open on Tues. Sept. 3 and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Please call or email Gretchen Newberry (608-783-8455, [email protected]) to register. Please note that the Visitor Center will be closed but outdoor restrooms are available. Please join our experts by the 3-panel kiosk near the Visitor Center parking lot. We will walk together along paved and gravel trails over a distance of up to two miles. Participants should bring a flash light and drinking water and should wear closed-toed shoes and come dressed for the weather – the wind can add a chill out on the prairie! The event will be cancelled if there is inclement weather.
