Creatures of the Night: Spiders

As night falls, the places we spend time outdoors can feel like a very different place. Familiar trails melt into shadows and the daytime soundscape is replaced with things that go bump in the night as nocturnal creatures come out to play. Join the Elkhart County Parks as we lift night’s veil to reveal the hidden lives of these creatures of the night, from spiders weaving webs to bats on the wing. In September, we’ll step out to find one of the creepiest of crawlies – the spider. Come brave the dark and see this fascinating, phobia-inducing creature in action on a spider-seeking night hike. Spider specialist, Linda Strain, will join us to identify and share fascinating facts about this eight-legged creature.

What to Expect: Come prepared for a 2-mile hike. This program is weather-dependent. Please check the event page
for updates before heading out.
Suggested Gear: Hiking shoes, flashlight/headlamp, and extra layers (if it’s a cooler night).
Meet At: Benton Dam in River Preserve County Park, located 1 mile south of US-33 on C.R. 31 in Goshen (Directions here).
