Well, at least according to the interpreters at Mason Neck State Park!
October 18 & 19th 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Box turtle up close and personal!
You will get a chance to see for yourself as you enter the “Enchanted Forest” where the animal inhabitants of the park will come alive on this special night to tell you all about how they live and what they do inside in the wild woods.
Great Horned Owl
A guide will lead your group through the softly lit forest to discover everything you can about the critters that call Mason Neck home.
This family friendly alternative, to a scary event, this time of year promises to be fun and educational as staff and volunteers work their magic on the forest.
Not afraid of the dark and looking for a little adventure? You can join the “Lights Out Hike” for older kids, ten and up and adults too. A guide will “turn out the lights” to tell you about night vision and nocturnal animals. Yikes! Sounds like fun to me! Do you think you can keep your cool in the quiet woods at night?
