A Sense of the Night

March 21 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Have you ever wondered why you don’t see many animals in the park? While we’re out sightseeing, many of park’s animals are relaxing in the shade, waiting for night to arrive. Join Ranger C. Negele to learn about specific adaptations that allow Big Bend’s nocturnal residents to thrive while we’re sleeping. Meet at the Chisos Basin Amphitheater. Wheelchair accessible. Bring a flashlight. 1 hour.

The Chisos Basin Amphitheater is located southwest of the Chisos Basin Campground. Parking is available at the amphitheater.
