Explore the Arboretum at night as we search for answers to questions about migration. In the classroom, discuss migrational instincts and the benefits as well as hazards of migration. We will examine the effects of urban development, manmade obstacles and the strain that is put on vulnerable animal populations. Outdoors, bats, birds and insects, as well as other lesser known migrants, will be encountered as we visit various habitats within the Arboretum grounds after nightfall.
