LEWIS AND CLARK NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK — On Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27, Lewis and Clark National Historical Park hosts a pair of bat-based events.
At 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, join Dr. Tara Chestnut, a wildlife ecologist from Mt. Rainier National Park to learn about bats, the deadly white-nose syndrome that has decimated their populations, and what national parks in the Pacific Northwest are doing about it.
The event takes place at the Netul Landing Bus Shelter, 91427 Fort Clatsop Road, Astoria.
Then, on Saturday, Oct. 27, enjoy an evening of stories, activities and getting to know night creatures on a ranger-led night hike. The walk will be about a quarter of a mile over an uneven trail through dark forest, so be sure to wear sturdy shoes and bring a flashlight.
The event begins at 5 p.m., with the last walk starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Fort Clatsop Visitor Center. All zombies, vampires, superheroes, princesses and others are welcome. Enjoy crafts and treats inside the Visitor Center while you wait for your walk.
