Day Hike - Woodard Bay

Join us for the annual Family Bat (and Cormorant) sunset hike. We will head out an hour before sunset and be at the point to see the bats come out for the night, enjoying cocoa and bat cookies and the lovely waterfront. Watch the breeding cormorants colony across the water as a bonus!
