Do you have what it takes to be a Night Explorer?


Intended for kids ages 10 to 14 and their adults, Night Explorers is a fun fall event encouranging outdoor fun and exploration.

Night Explorers will return in 2018! Stay tuned for dates and information.

If you have a sense of adventure, a love of learning, and a knack for roasting marshmallows, join us for Night Explorers! At Night Explorers, kids and their adults learn about life in the woods at night through nocturnal animal presentations, owl calls, and a community campfire, complete with marshmallows and hot drinks.

We strive to make our programs accessible to everyone. Inquire about accommodations for special needs by contacting Lan Tran at 412-586-4576 or ltran@pittsburghparks.org.
