Nature at Night

October 22, 2022
4:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Monte Bello Preserve
Approximate Total Miles

When the sun sets, not all of nature goes to sleep. Some parts of nature are active in the cool darkness of night. Join Docent Naturalists Paul Billig, Debbi Brusco, and Jack Owicki as you witness the changes that occur along the Stevens Creek Nature Trail as day moves into night. The hike begins with a walk down the Canyon Trail where you'll stop to enjoy your dinner as darkness descends. On your return hike you'll be vigilant for the sights and sounds of nature at night. Bring a pad or plastic to sit on and a flashlight. Red filters for your flashlight will be provided for those who need them. Reservations are required and will be accepted on or after October 8 at 12:00 p.m. (Noon) and close October 21 at 2:00 p.m.

Meet at the preserve parking lot on Page Mill Road (across from Los Trancos Preserve), 7 miles west of I-280 or 1.5 miles east of Skyline Boulevard. Those traveling from I-280 on Page Mill Rd. should allow approximately 35 minutes travel time.
