Start inside with a presentation on who's who of nocturnal critters and meet a live animal. Then go for a short evening walk to search of signs of nocturnal animal activity.

Join Audubon for an evening walk and discussion regarding the beavers that have taken up residence in the Fisherville Pond. We will take a look at beaver dams, lodges and hopefully observe the beaver themselves. At dusk, these creatures become active, so we may get to see these engineers at work. Wear sturdy shoes and bring a flashlight. For children ages 8 and up.
