HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Children ages 8 to 12 can traverse the wild

outdoors and find out what goes on in nature when the sun goes down.

The Burbank Park, Recreation and Community Services Department is

offering the Twilight Nature Camp, where kids can learn about bats,

bobcats and astrology. Children will study different animals and then try

to find them in nature at dusk, spokeswoman Carol Stiver Mercado said.


The Twilight Nature Camp is from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and

Friday at the Stough Nature Center. The cost for all three days is $25.

In addition to nighttime learning, 8- to 12-year-old children can take

part in the Orienteering and Outdoor Skills Camp, where they will learn

to track and identify animals, Mercado said.

The camp will be from 9 a.m. to noon July 23 to 27 at the Stough

Canyon Nature Center. Cost for the week is $40.

For more information about either program, call 238-5440.
