Nature at Night

Jul 22, 2011

kids elk calling Summer is a great time to explore the outdoors at night. No school the next day, warm nights and lots of stuff to see. A little bug spray, a flashlight and some red cellophane and you’re ready to go! Twin Pines Conservation Education Center recently held an Elk Camp where visitors explored the grounds at night, went on a hunt for the mythical Karkhagne beast and held its first kids’ elk-calling contest. Billy Bob Scott of Marshall put a lot of enthusiasm behind his winning call.

For more information on upcoming programs or exploring the Ozarks at night, call Twin Pines at 573-325-1381. Twin Pines is located on Highway 60 in Winona, Mo.

Yes, summer nights are outstanding and the nights out are great and enjoyable to spend with family and friends.
