Bear witness to the nocturnal wildlife, from bats and spiders to owls and snakes. According to the Garfield Park Conservatory's website, attendees will learn the "tricks" of nocturnal creatures, collect treats along the way, sing and dance to live music, make masks, plant "grow in the dark” necklaces, assemble an animal puppet and more. The Tree House and Red Door animal shelters also will be on hand to show off crepuscular animals, which are active at dawn and dusk.
