The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service invites the public to participate in a special evening event at the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge. When the sun sets, the wildlife refuge comes alive with creeping scorpions, calling coyotes, and other critters.
On Saturday, Sept. 6, as twilight turns to darkness on the Pahranagat NWR, participants will hunt for scorpions and take a short night hike, while learning how these animals adapt in order to thrive in the darkness. The activities start at 8 p.m., and end at 9 p.m. The event is free of charge and ultraviolet flashlights will be provided for hunting scorpions. All ages are welcome.
Space is limited and those wishing to take part are asked to contact Tim Parker by September 4, 2014, via email, to email@example.com.
The Pahranagat NWR was established on Aug. 16, 1963, to provide habitat for migratory birds, especially waterfowl. The wildlife refuge is located approximately 90 miles north of Las Vegas on U.S. 93 in Lincoln County, Nevada. Situated along the Pacific Flyway, Pahranagat?s 5,380 acres contain lakes and marshes ? rare sights in this part of Nevada.
