Mark the evening of Saturday, July 23 to bring your family to the “Creatures of the Night” Night Hike, from 8-10 p.m. at the Maine Wildlife Park under the light of the full moon.

The park on Route 26 in Gray will open to the public for a night walk so visitors can experience the park and wildlife at night. We recommend that you bring your own flashlights, and we will cover them with red cellophane to improve your night vision. Volunteer guides will be stationed at several wildlife exhibits to talk a bit about the animals’ nightlife.

The Nature Store and Snack Shack will be open to accommodate our visitors. The wildlife park is a wonderfully safe place to experience the out-of-doors at night. The regular park admission fees will be charged for this unusual night visit.

For more information about any of these programs, please call the Maine Wildlife Park at 657-4977 or check us out online at
