GENEVA, Ind. – The public is invited to Creatures of the Night on Friday, April
22 at 8:30 p.m. at the Loblolly Marsh Nature Preserve. Attendees will learn
about creatures that roam the Limberlost when the sun goes down.
“Humans are most comfortable in the daylight,
but we want them to get out of their comfort zones and come to the Loblolly
Marsh to see what nature’s night shift is up to,” said Randy Lehman, Limberlost
State Historic Site manager.
The program will include a night hike in the
woods where attendees will search for glowing eyes and listen for frog calls, discover
nocturnal underwater creatures with a dip-netting activity, reach into mystery
boxes to guess what is inside and a chance to hear and see like a creature of
the night by using bionic ears and a night vision monocular.
Following the hike there will be a wildlife
presentation by Curt Burnette, Limberlost State Historic Site naturalist.
The program will end with a campfire and
marshmallow roast. Attendees are encouraged to bring a flashlight.
Admission is $4 per adult and $3 per child
ages 3 to 12. No toddlers please.
The Loblolly Marsh parking lot is located at
8323 N. 250 W. in Bryant, Ind.
