Choose between our Night Exploration and our Extended Night Hike:

Night Exploration

 

Surrounded by 15,000 acres of dark Ozark forest, our skies are truly amazing.  Learn about the stars as they shine brightly and the history of their myths.  Listen for soft rustles of nocturnal animals and call in the owls!  Watch for bats and shadows across the night sky.  

 

After we explore a trail and walk by the star-lit pond, we will head back to the campus for s’mores around the campfire.

 

Extended Night Hike 

 

After the sun goes down, a new world emerges. This is the night hike that goes a little farther into the forest for more experienced hikers.  We will take Boti trail and come out on a beautiful overlook at Wishing Rock under an amazing open vista over Bear Hollow.  

 

Learn the stars and their mythology as we watch night fliers and hear their calls.  After the overlook, we will return to campus as we hear soft rustles of nocturnal animals. We will end back at the Lewis Pavilion for s’mores around the campfire.  

 

Join us for an amazing night at Ozark Natural Science Center that you will never forget
