The night comes alive at Muleshoe Bend. We will talk about (and listen for) creatures of the night along Lake Travis and the Hill Country.

Due to COVID precautions, we must limit this to 4 registration and a maximum group size of 10 participants. Bring your hiking shoes, bug spray, and a headlamp with a red light option!
