20 Explorer Chicks
1/2 Day

Overview

Nature at night? You betcha. At Anne Springs Close Greenway outside Charlotte, NC, we’ll meet creatures that like to burn the midnight oil. Night owls are sure to see some actual night owls (and bats and foxes and raccoons) on our private nature walk before enjoying a delicious dinner and a few SHE-nanigans!

Private Twilight Nature Walk

Meet your Guide and fellow Explorer Chicks at Anne Springs Close Greenway, a 2,100-acre nature preserve outside of Charlotte. Lead by trained Outdoor Program Staff, be sure to use all your senses during this gentle two-mile hike. Keep your eyes open for deer, listen for owls, and inhale the intoxicating pine scent as you explore the nighttime forest. Along the way, stop to learn about and discuss various plants, rocks, and wildlife. It’s just us and our own, private nature expert—so ask away!

Dinner at the Greenway Gateway Canteen

Now we’d disappoint your mama if we sent you off to bed hungry, and we can’t have that. So after exploring the Anne Springs Close Greenway at twilight, gather with us at the Gateway Canteen for a delicious dinner. Choose from a variety of fresh salads such as the Trekker (spinach, cucumbers, candied walnuts, and fig chévre, with wheat berry bread), or sandwiches like the Dogwood Chicken Sandwich (marinated chicken with sun-dried tomato pesto, smoked Gouda, lettuce and tomato on a toasted hoagie). How you choose? How?! The menu may vary seasonally for the freshest ingredients. There is beer and wine available for purchase. Whatever you decide on, grab it, find a seat with all your new besties, and talk about the cool stuff you saw on your nature walk. This is what Explorer Chick is all about!
