Creatures of the Night

Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona del Mar opened its doors on the evening of October 10 for its first Creatures of the Night event. Designed to educate and entertain kids and adults, wildlife organizations provided interactive experiences with nocturnal predators including wolves, owls and hawks. Creepy crawlers such as scorpions, tarantulas, snakes, hissing cockroaches and an assortment of worms could be viewed as well. The pygmy African Hedgehogs were a special treat. Erin Aguiar, Director of Horticulture, set up a demonstration of carnivorous plants and assisted children in feeding them. The floral riches of the Gardens made this an evening to remember.
