Saturday, March 9, 2019 - 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free admission and open to all!

It’s exciting to be outside at night, especially when your favorite grownup is there . . . and lots of other kids!

Play super-fun Glow Party games and hike the darkened trails of Portman Nature Preserve, guided by Julie Collard (Kalamazoo area chapter of Little Adventurers’ Club) and TJ Wilkinson (Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy board member). Bring the kids and experience Portman Nature Preserve in a whole new light!

~ Glowsticks will be provided by Little Adventurers’ Club but flashlights and headlamps are very helpful, so bring them if you have them – and stuff that glows will add a festive flair.
~ It can get chilly once the sun goes down, so be sure to dress your kids (and self) in layers and – of course – wear comfy walking shoes.
~ Snacks and drinks will not be provided at this event, so be sure to pack some in case the little guys get hungry after their walk.
