Canyon Explorers: Nighttime Flyers

Bommer Canyon

Bommer Canyon Cattle Camp

Irvine Ranch

Hooting great horned owls, singing poorwills and screeching barn owls all help to fill the night with sound. While on our night hike, we will keep an ear out for our nighttime fliers’ calls and watch for their silent flight across the canyon. This program is a perfect evening adventure for children 6 – 10 years of age. We will spend time exploring our program’s topic out on the trails to better connect our natural history knowledge with the surrounding canyon. Our hike is a 2 – 3 mile trek along uneven terrain, with possible hills and moderate elevation for children. This is not ideal for off-road strollers. Parent or guardian must register and attend along with their child. Free event runs 7:00pm – 8:30pm for ages 6 and up. Register online. Driving directions emailed upon registration.
