Kid’s Nature Night – Absurd Adaptations

April 14 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

**Registration for this event is now full. Please email Sena at the address below if you would like to be added to the waiting list for the next Nature Night event in May.

Parents, take the night off while your child has a fun-filled time with other kids at Great Hollow! This night program is all about the amazingly weird and seemingly absurd adaptations that some plants and animals have to survive. We’ll start our evening off by cooking dinner over a campfire, and then dive into the awesome world of exploding ants, disgusting disguises, masters of camouflage, zombie fungi, killer plants, and gulping eyeballs! We’ll take a night hike, play animal adaptation games, complete some fun activities, and see some amazing adaptations in action by feeding our resident snake.

This is a drop-off program, open to children ages 5-12. We will be outside at least half of the evening, so please dress your child(ren) accordingly. Dinner consists of hotdogs or veggie dogs with all the fixings, juice, and s’mores for dessert. Please feel free to send your child with an alternate dinner and/or dessert from home if you would prefer. $25/child for non-members; $20/child for members. Please register by emailing Sena at gro.w1545074097olloh1545074097taerg1545074097@anes1545074097.

(Can you spot the camouflaged gecko on the tree?)
