La Quinta, CA – Come dressed as your favorite character for this family-friendly hike in the cove! Friends of the Desert Mountains invites you to be a part of the excitement this Saturday night. A prize will be given for best costume and the runner-up, too.
Meet at the Southwest Corner at the Top of the Cove, beginning at 5:30 PM for Birding at Night for Bats which is an active monitoring session to identify the bats that live in La Quinta Cove. Local astronomers will also setup their telescopes to give “sky tours”. Enjoy Stargazing to learn more about the amazing night sky.
When it becomes full darkness, everyone will use black lights to seek out the various night creatures inhabiting your desert. Some creatures to be found are: scorpions, tarantulas, lizards, geckos, spiders, owls, jackrabbits, snakes and maybe a coyote.
This is a family fun event. Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian. Bring water and wear closed-toed shoes. If you have a black light bring it along. If not, there will be a few to share.
