The winter solstice marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year, and it's a great time for exploring River Bend Nature Center at night! Join us on Friday, December 21st from 7pm to 9pm, and celebrate with a hike under the stars as we explore Solstice traditions around the globe, including a traditional Native American pipe ceremony. Hike on luminary lined trails, gather around the campfire to sip cocoa, and learn about the amazing animals and owls that roam River Bend at night from our naturalist volunteers. Join us for a night of inspiration as we look forward to longer and lighter days. Appropriate for all ages, open to the public!
