Creatures of the Night at Mountsberg on August 17

Posted by on

As night falls and we are preparing to go to sleep, some creatures are just waking up. These nocturnal species are specially adapted to be awake when light levels are low. Many are active in our neighbourhoods and we may not even know it.

To learn more, join us at the Mountsberg Conservation Area on Saturday, August 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. for “Creatures of the Night”. Families can learn about these special animals with nocturnal-themed games, crafts and activities, storytelling, guest presentations, live animal visits and a night hike as part of this evening event.

About Mountsberg Conservation Area
Mountsberg Conservation Area is located on Milburough Line, five km west of Campbellville, ON, between Highway 6 South and the Guelph Line. This 472 hectare park includes extensive wetlands, forests, fields, and a reservoir. Mountsberg hosts many family friendly events which are sure to become family traditions for many in the community. It is also well known for the Mountsberg Raptor Centre, which is home to 15 different species of native birds of prey. Many of the Raptor Centre’s resident birds of prey have permanent injuries that have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild.
