Who wants to spend a summer evening listening to the owls, toads, crickets and frogs that call McCloud Nature Park home? Join the McCloud naturalist for a guided night hike along McCloud's scenic trails at 8:30 p.m. Saturday Aug. 3, and learn to identify McCloud's nocturnal inhabitants by their vocalizations.

Registration is required for this free program, which is designed for all ages and will last about an hour and a half.
