Howling at the Moon
The beacon of the night lights up the darkness, but how much do you really know about the moon? Explore moon myths and discover what really goes on during the full moon. Do crazy things really happen on the moon? We’ll see for ourselves on a moonlit walk. Then it’s back to the amphitheater for campfire treats.


July 25, 2014 – CANCELED
Twilight Travelers

As your bedtime approaches, the crepuscular critters come out to play. Learn about the crepuscular (active at dusk and dawn) and nocturnal wildlife of southeast Wisconsin. The night closes with campfire treats.
