Night Prowl in Yosemite

The Night Prowl is an exciting adventure that will take you on a walk through the woods in Yosemite at night. One of our Interpretive Naturalists will guide you along unpaved trails and share their knowledge with you on a variety of topics ranging from noctural animals and their unique adaptions, to the night time navigation, to Yosemite's fascinating plant life and herb lore. Whatever the topic for the evening, you are sure to find yourself stunned by the beauty and tranquility that can only be found by exploring Yosemite at night. 

***  Night Prowl meets on the back lawn of The Ahwahnee Hotel at 8:30 pm
