You can also explore The Ridges at night! During a night hike on the boardwalk Aug. 14, 8-9:30 pm, learn about the creatures that become active after the sun goes down, and check out how the range lights work as a navigational aid. Participants should not take flashlights, wear light-up shoes or have other luminary devices so that their eyes can adjust to the dark.
