Night Hike through Sodalis Nature Preserve
DATE AND TIME
07/26/2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
There will be a Night Hike through Sodalis Nature Preserve at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 8 at Sodalis Nature Preserve.
This night hike will be an optimal time to see bats during the migration back to Sodalis Nature Preserve.
Representatives from the Mississippi Hills Master Naturalists will lead the hike, which will give participants the chance to appreciate nature as the season changes. The program is free but reservations must be made online here.
Sodalis Nature Preserve was named for the myotis sodalis (Indiana bat) species that was discovered in the park. Bat scientists are estimated that about 215,000 of the bats hibernate in the abandoned limestone mines.
The full Night Hike program lasts about two hours and follows a 2-mile paved trail.

The Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department has developed Scavenger Hunts to encourage visitors to the Hannibal parks. Hannibal children, along with visitors to Hannibal, will have a chance to explore our parks in a different way. These free activities allow participants to learn more about Hannibal Parks and to earn a free treat from a local business in the process!
