Creatures of the Night

     Friday, February 24 & Saturday, February 25    5 – 7 pm 

By day, Sherman Library & Gardens is a paradise of colorful flowers and blooming plants.  But on the evenings of February 24th & 25th @ 5 – 7 pm, Sherman Library & Gardens will offer a glimpse into a different world when the Gardens presents Creatures of the Night a family friendly evening of entertainment and education.

Creatures of the Night is a lively and engaging event where families can come to have fun while learning about the habits of birds of prey, creepy crawly bugs and nocturnal animals.  OC Birds of Prey, Santa Ana Zoo and Adventures in Living Science will be here sharing their knowledge and their creatures.

Grab an adventurous partner, or the whole family, and discover what plants and animals do after dark.  Hair-raising horticulture, night blooming botanicals, Dr. Tim’s Apothecary, and the Toxic Tropics await!
