Nature’s Nightshift at Mt. A

Mount Agamenticus
Mountain Road
Cape Neddick, ME 03902
United States

Join us on Saturday, July 9 from 6-8PM at the summit of Mt. Agamenticus as we talk about the creatures of the night and explore the trails of Mt. A for a night hike!

How does a bat find thousands of tiny mosquitoes in the dark? Why would an opossum choose to lumber around at night? How does a porcupine defend himself against a predator? How can an owl see its way through the forest? Wild animals continue their fight for survival, even as we sleep. With the help of our non-releasable wildlife ambassadors, we will find out how nocturnal animals utilize all of their senses to find food and shelter at night.

After our interactive nocturnal animal presentation, we will hit the trails of Mt. A for a night hike to search for both nocturnal animals and the signs they leave behind. This will be an intermediate level hike and all participants are encouraged to bring their own headlight, bug spray and weather-appropriate clothing.

This event will be held outdoors rain or shine.

All proceeds from our Mount Agamenticus partner programs help fund the work of wildlife and environmental conservation conducted by the Center for Wildlife and The Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region!
