Discovery After Dark Program and Tour
Come enjoy the evening beauty of Fossil Rim. Watch the stars and listen to the nighttime sounds, as we venture out into the park at dark. We’ll start with an interactive learning experience where you can discover nocturnal animal adaptations. Then, using spotlights, we’ll go on a guided sunset tour focused on the nightlife of Fossil Rim. We’ll see Fossil Rim’s exotic animals and some native Texas species. We may see some animals that don’t usually come right up to vehicles during daytime Safari Tours! Afterwards, we’ll adventure on foot by taking a hike after dark. Participants will meet at the Overlook area. This activity, which will last approximately three hours, costs $35 per person and is limited to 32 participants.
