First Event After Accreditation of North Fork Park as an International Dark Sky Park: Wildlife Wander, May 2

Spring Wildlife Wander in North Fork Park 

Led by Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) wildlife biologist Clint Brunson under a rising full moon, this family-friendly walking adventure will begin at 7 pm Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the South Gate parking lot of North Fork Park in Liberty.  
North Fork Park, after an arduous 18-month process supported by a broad range of public and private entities, has just gained accreditation as a highly prestigious International Dark Sky Park (only the second county park in America to be so recognized and the first in the world to be located so close to a highly urbanized region). 
The Spring Wildlife Wander will offer a full-moon opportunity to learn about the many kinds of wildlife in the park, particularly those that are nocturnal and depend upon a dark night sky - away from city and suburban lights - for feeding, migration, reproduction and certain predator/prey relationships.  North Fork Park enjoys populations of many such animals including bobcats, flying squirrels, porcupines, owls (Great Horned, Western Screech, Northern Saw-Whet, Flammulated), bats (Big Brown Bat, Hoary Bat), frogs (Chorus Frog) and the Western (Boreal)  Toad.
Please join us with friends and family.
Bring warm layers, footwear that doesn't fear mud, questions, and a spirit of adventure!
