Flashlight Tike Hikes

Free admission and open to all little kids and their families!
What goes bump in the night? Don’t worry, it’s just us — a bunch of little kids out exploring by flashlight!

It’s fun to listen to the night sounds and smell the night scents when you’ve got your big brother or sister, mom or dad, auntie or uncle, grandma or grandpa, or lots of friends by your side. Please join Julie Collard and other members of the Little Adventurers’ Club for any one – or all – of this series of short night hikes geared for little folk.

Friday nights in November, 6:30 – 7:30 pm
