It May Be Night, But That’s All Right

Eyes adjust…what’s spooky are campfire songs and stories

Smores and a campfireOn a late October evening, it’s so much fun to gather around a blazing campfire for s’mores and spooky songs, skits and stories.

Add a journey into the darkness, and the night turns unforgettable for all.

Meet at the Swine Creek Reservation Lodge on Saturday, October 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. for Spooky Campfire and Hike!

Naturalist John Kolar said visitors to Swine Creek will round out the night by hiking among the park’s evergreens and deciduous trees, keeping ears open for sounds of the night such as owls, mammals, and late insects.

“Hikers will also participate in a few interesting eye tricks,” he added, “and experience the magic of Luffa Nuts.”

Best of all, no flashlights will be used on the night hike – we’ll just let our eyes adjust!

Registration is not required, but participants should bring their own lawn chairs or blankets for the campfire portion of the program. Please note activities are partially wheelchair/stroller accessible, and hiking will be cancelled by bad weather. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.

Geauga Park District is online, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
