Online registration is now open for Grandfather Mountain’s Creatures of the Night & Bonfire Delight.
The event, set for Oct. 4, 2014, features spooky stories told by firelight and rare after-dark tours of Grandfather Mountain.
After joining for hot chocolate and apple cider by the bonfire, guests will join the Animal Habitats staff for a nighttime trek on the Mountain.
Participants can visit the black bear habitat and embark on an Owl Prowl to search for the noisy nocturnal natives. They also have the opportunity to meet several of Grandfather Mountain’s educational animals: Eastern screech owls Zoey and Herbie and barred owl Shakespeare.
“Seeing the animals that roam after dark is a real treat,” said Habitats Curator Christie Tipton. “There’s nothing better than getting outside in the crisp autumn air.”
The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 4.
Participants must be at least 8 years old to attend, and registration is required. Admission to the program is $20 per person.
Guests should dress warmly and bring blankets, flashlights and s’mores ingredients to enjoy around the fire.
