Full Moon Hike
Dec 22 @ 5:00 pm – 6:15 pm

Walk in a winter moon-lit forest and test your senses like animals do. Experience how their senses of hearing, smell, touch, and feel become heightened as their sense of sight is limited. We also discuss how full moons occur and their impact on nocturnal and non-nocturnal creatures. We will see for ourselves what is happening in the forest under a full moon.

It is winter, so please dress warmly. The program and hike is two hours, but the hike time will be limited by weather conditions.
