Join Marian University for an early spring night hike to learn about beavers, owls, and other native Indiana wildlife active in the spring!

Come out to the Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab to enjoy an evening hike looking for frogs, owls, and to see the handiwork of the resident beaver colony. We’ll start with a hike at dusk, looking and listening for the elaborate aerial displays and calls of the woodcock that reside in the EcoLab, do some owl calling, and look for other signs of early spring wildlife activity. We’ll learn about beaver adaptations and the role of beavers in wetlands, and will learn some really cool facts about owls too.

All ages welcome and encouraged! Bring flashlight, binoculars, and dress appropriately for the weather since we will be outside. Parking is available near the Allison Mansion and in the Marian Hall lot across from Allison Mansion.

We will meet at the St. Francis statue on the west side of the mansion, and then head down to the EcoLab shortly after. This event is free and family friendly! Registration is appreciated, especially if you are bringing a group. Please register here. Questions can be directed to Stephanie Schuck at sschuck@marian.edu.
