Hoot, Splash, and Peep: Sounds of Spring Evening Family Hike

Owls, peepers and other creatures come out at night at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary!

Spring nights are full of life and full of sounds.  Frogs and toads sing in chorus from the water, timberdoodles twirl and peent in the fields, and countless other animals rustle in the dark forest. On this family hike at dusk we will sharpen our senses, learn some nighttime animal sounds, and go out to explore what creatures are awake and singing their songs all night long.
