Nantucket 78.8°F Clear/Sunny
Stars & Senses Night Hike Maria Mitchell

Stars & Senses Night Hike

Join Dan Souza, MMA’s Museum Manager, for an evening hike under the stars. During the walk you will participate in a color vision activity, learn how our eyes adjust to the dark, listen for nocturnal animals, take a solo journey if you dare, and enjoy a minty snack while learning about bioluminescence. At the end of the walk, sit back and relax while you hear stories of summer constellations.

This program is appropriate for children ages 8 and up, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration required.  The program will meet at the state forest parking lot on Lover’s Lane. In the case of inclement weather, programs will be cancelled and participants will be notified.

Interested in a private Night Hike? Call us at 508-228-9198 or email to find out about pricing.

Masks required

The event is finished.
