On this enchanted evening, animals have the ability to speak human language and communicate with visitors. You can follow the guided luminary-lit Enchanted Trail to meet them.

This magical, non-scary event is designed for children and their adults. Talking animals engage your imagination, maybe make you laugh, and teach you something about wildlife in the region. After the walk, stop at the pavilion in the backyard to enjoy snacks and a campfire. Visit inside the nature center for an animal-themed craft, and exhibits.

*Reservations for this guided walk are required. Walks go out every 10 minutes. Each walk last about 40 minutes. (Sunset is approximately 6:45 p.m.) Audubon members at the Family level and higher may reserve starting August 16. Regular registration opens September 1.
