Cope Environmental Center would like to announce that we will be having our annual Spring Night Hike on Friday, April 13 from 8:30-10:30pm!

Have you ever wondered what happens in the woods after dark? Come and join us as we hike through CEC’s woods in search of owls and other nocturnal creatures!

Local naturalist Russ Wright will lead this fun hike. A few activities will be done on the trails too! We will be using all of our senses to find our way through the woods at night!

The night hike group will be meeting on the south side of the CEC property, 4910 Shoemaker Road, Centerville, IN at 8:30pm. Please dress for the weather. Leave your flashlights and light-up shoes at home as lights from hikers will scare nocturnal animals.

Registration is required before the event. This exciting hike is $3 for CEC members and $5 for non-members. We have a limit of 40 spots available. Please contact Aubrey to register at 765-855-3188 or [email protected]. Payment required before this event.
