Roaming through pristine forests on wooden trails sounds like a dreamy way to spend a pretty spring day. However, if you live in Texas, you know that it's often way too hot to get out and enjoy nature during the day. But not all hope is lost, there are ways to still enjoy the outdoors and avoid the heat like drinking beer at the Houston Arboretum's night hike while trying to find some owls.
The Houston Arboretum is hosting an "Adult Night Prowl" on May 23 and it's one of their "Arboretum at Night" events that the Arboretum will put on from time to time.
The "Adult Owl Prowl" is a nighttime hike through the pretty wooded trails where you can scout out some owls.
Even though the sun might be set and it won't be nearly as hot out, that doesn't mean you won't need fuel and to keep you going through the leisurely hike, they will be offering snacks, beer, and coffee!
The prowl goes from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the tickets are $45 for non-Arboretum members and $35 for members.
It's not an intense hike but the Arboretum does recommend wearing appropriate clothing like comfortable walking shoes.
Even though the guides will have flashlights, this unique night-time hike will be really dark (it is at night after all).
Hiking through the tall trees is a fun and maybe even a slightly spooky way to get outside and try to see what nighttime critters you can find while enjoying some Saint Arnold's beer or Katz's coffee.
The Arboretum is one of the many magical looking parks we have in Houston and is worth a visit, day or night!
The huge 155-acre park is home to lots of wildlife, including a variety of different species of birds. Hiking through the park at night is the perfect opportunity to see the cute owls you wouldn't normally be able to see during the day.
