Do you wonder what it’s like to hike in Sonoma County Regional Parks at night? Join us for this exclusive evening series as we explore the changes and sensations the darkness brings. Engage with the beautiful and often unseen world of Helen Putnam Regional Park, learn about nocturnal animals, view the vast expanse of stars in the night sky and watch the sun set below the horizon. During this family friendly adventure, we will use our senses to explore the sights and sounds of the twilight hour. This mellow walk offers a unique experience to learn about our nocturnal neighbors, play games and be exhilarated by nightlife in the park. The cost is $10 for in-county residents and $12 for out-of-county attendees. For more information, contact Kelsey Austin at communityengagementprograms@sonoma-county.org. Registration required.

Please bring your own water and snacks. We recommend participants dress in layers and bring a hat and sunscreen. Most programs will happen rain or shine, but may be canceled during heavy rains, heavy smoke, or extreme temperatures. Accommodations will be made for visitors with disabilities upon advance request. Parking is $7 or free with a Regional Parks membership.
