The first session runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon and the second session runs from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. This program is designed for ages 16 and up. Attendees under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present. Class size limit of 15.
Nature at Night---July 25, 2019---8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
This program starts just before dark at Twin Pines, which is the best time to explore the "night shift" of nature. What is the "night shift?" It is more than owls and bats. Many animals are active only at night. Learn what you can expect to see and hear, then we will head out on the trail to enjoy the Missouri Ozarks after dark. Suitable shoes are recommended.
Reservations are required for both programs. Reservations can be made by calling 888-283-0364 or online at www.mdc.mo.gov/twinpines. For further information, call Twin Pines CEC at 573-325-1381.
