Joyfully Connecting Our Community with the Wonder of the Refuge

Creatures of the Night

  • October 19, 2019
  • 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge

What do owls eat? Find out by dissecting an owl pellet.

How do bats find their food? Learn from our fun and friendly naturalists.

What does the Refuge look and sound like in the dark? Use your senses on a guided trail walk.

And perhaps the most important question of all: Do you like cookies? Learn how to decorate animal cookies in the style of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with our friends from Panaderia 5 de Mayo.
