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 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.
