Join us for an evening hike up Mitchell Canyon in search of the crepuscular critters that call Mount Diablo home.

We’ll get close up and personal with Liz Watson’s eight-legged friend, Scarlett O’Harry, before we head out to look for owls, bats, reptiles, spiders, and other denizens of the dark that hide during the day but shine (figuratively and sometimes literally) as the sun goes down.
