The trails at the Botanical Garden offer so much to discover at night, especially during summer—come see the lightning bug display in June and July, search for glow worms and phosphorescent fungus, and hear the frogs, cicadas, and katydids. Each walk will focus on a different topic and we’re sure to discover magical moments each month! Bring family and friends of all ages and be prepared to hike up to 2 miles on our wooded trails and in the garden. Pre-registration is required.
