The Coyote Howl Pajama Night includes a guided hike, longhouse exploration, craft, snack, and storytelling around a fire.   Staff will guide you through the starlit forest on a search for night creatures and attempt to call for the resident coyotes.     After the hike, children can create a craft as a memory of their hike and then journey to the Iroquoian village to explore a reconstructed 15th century longhouse.   Finally, to conclude your evening, you can relax by a fire and listen to a legend as you enjoy a gooey smore!

 

The Coyote Howl Pajama Night runs on Saturday September 6th, from 7pm to 9pm and requires pre-registration.  To register, please visit the Conservation Halton website, at www.conservationhalton.on.ca  The cost for the program is $16.00 for adults and $11.00 for seniors and children.  Reserve your spot for this special evening early!
