By day, Sherman Library & Gardens is a paradise of colorful flowers and blooming plants, but an evening in the gardens offers a glimpse into a different world.
On Saturday, Sherman Gardens presents “Creatures of the Night,” a fun family evening designed for interacting, observing and learning about the many plants and animals that are most active at night.
Visitors will receive a “passport” to explore the Gardens after dark and visit interactive animal stations that delve into the nocturnal world and its inhabitants.
Attendees can get up close to Project Wildsong’s Ambassador Wolves. Weave their way through the Forbidden Jungle and get a close look at dissected carnivorous plants. Visit Bug Country where Adventures in Living Science will dispel myths of the creepy crawlies. View scorpions under black light and, if they dare, stick their hand in the worm pit.
Cost is $10 for Friends of Sherman Library & Gardens members, $15 for non-members, $5 for children ages 6-17, and free for children age 5 and under.
Creatures of the Night” experiences are at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
