Explore Severson Dells at night. See what stars are shining and what animals are out during the early hours of the evening. Please come dressed for the weather, as we plan to be out for an hour and a half or so. If you would like to bring a small flashlight you are welcome to, but we encourage you to let your eyes adjust and enjoy being out in the dark. Spring is on its way when the call and flight of the timberdoodle graces our evenings. Join us for a leisurely stroll of our grasslands to look and listen for these delightful birds.
