Inside the center, the Chicago Field Museum's Jim Louderman will share his extensive knowledge of bats and insects. Then head outside for a short hike in Miller Woods to look for nocturnal creatures. Afterwards, warm-up inside the Douglas Center with coffee, tea, and hot chocolate while you explore the center’s exhibits.
