Scorpion Night Hike by Conserve Southwest Utah

September 15, 2023 - 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Arachnid Nightwalk

Join the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve for a scorpion night hike.

Experience the thrill of obscure local biodiversity with arachnid specialist, Zach Valois, of Conserve Southwest Utah.

Meet a live scorpion or two, explore the variety of scorpions found in our special ecotone, learn about scorpion safety and dispel common myths, contemplate the special connection between scorpions and the stars that shine down from protected dark night skies like those above Red Cliffs, and learn how to spot the Scorpius constellation.

This is a great, short hike for kids and a fun addition to the Southwest Astronomy Festival.

Stormy conditions could lead to this hike being canceled, so please RSVP to receive updates and location details.
