CHANDLER, Ariz. Find your wild and enjoy the great outdoors as Chandler Nature Center (CNC) hosts their first Nature at Night.
The after-hours event invites you to a wild night of recreational programming, giveaways and conservation advocacy on Saturday, April 1, from 5 to 10 p.m.
Explore Veterans Oasis Park while visiting various activity tables, teaching you how to become a wildland protector. You will learn about the importance of environmental responsibility from local partners like Arizona Conservation Corp, Center for Native and Urban Wildlife, Keep Nature Wild, REI and more.
“The Nature Center offers a variety of fun programs and exhibits geared towards environmental conservation,” says Derek Gerson, event organizer and CNC facility manager. “Nature at Night is a unique and exciting way to immerse yourself in the interconnectedness we share with our natural resources and public lands.”
Remember, dress for the weather. There are inside and outside activities.
Enjoy nature-inspired games like the Leave No Trace Relay Race and Scavenger Hunt. Discover environmental-friendly arts and crafts, lobby displays, including 2022-23 Nature Photo Contest entries, and Owl’s Nest Nature Store, which features a variety of eco-friendly products and nature-inspired books and toys.
The special evening concludes with the showing of the film 180° South: Conquerors of the Useless in the park. The hour-and-a-half movie covers the journey of Jeff Johnson as he travels from Ventura, California, to Patagonia, Chile to retrace the 1968 trip of Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins. Bring your chairs, blankets and snacks. The movie begins promptly at 7:30 p.m.
