Discover the Night 2022

The public is invited to a free hybrid online and in-person event being held by the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. Discover the Night is an opportunity to experience nighttime in the globally-rare Albany Pine Bush.

The website will be live from February 18-28, 2022. The site includes videos featuring our local wildlife, storytelling, community history and more. Visitors can sign up for a guided nighttime walk, play interactive games, download fun activities and nature craft instructions. The event has something for all ages.

Executive Director, Christopher Hawver said, “Our team of remarkable educators have worked hard to provide programs and special events that are safe and fun learning experiences. Discover the Night is an exceptional educational resource for adults, families and teachers who are searching for ways to engage with us and the natural world. We encourage everyone to explore some of the areas that interest you on the site and discover all that is extraordinary about the Albany Pine Bush.”
