Eye Shine & Ice Cream
Saturday, July 9
8:00 - 10:00 pm
$30 member / $45 nonmember / $15 child

We all scream for ice cream! Some folks are scared to be out in the woods at night, but not our nocturnal animals. Owls, frogs, rabbits, and spiders all have special adaptations that allow them to see in the dark. Because of these adaptations, their eyes seem to glow when we shine a light on them.

Join us for a family-friendly ice cream social catered by Amy’s Ice Cream and a fun lesson about how animals see at night, then come on a walk in the woods to look for eye shine. We will also have non-dairy fruit ice available, and for the adults, we’ll have Saint Arnold Brewing Company beer and Katz Coffee.

This event is rain or shine, and while it is family-friendly, we ask that any kiddos in attendance are ages 5 and up.
