Monument Night Adventures

July 23, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Scorpion in black light

Discover how the desert comes alive after dark! Do you know which animals change colors when you use a blacklight? Using blacklights, participants will take a short walk along the Art Smith Trail basin looking for the many nocturnal creatures that inhabit our desert. This is a family friendly event. Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Bring water and wear closed-toed shoes.

An RSVP is required and you must bring your ticket with you for check-in at 8:45 PM. Ticket reservations begin 14 days prior to the event. Sorry, no dogs allowed.

Your tax deductible donation of $5.00 is appreciated and encouraged to support our volunteer programs. For more information call: 760-568-9918.
