Full Moon Hike @ Emmons Preserve
Jan 31 @ 8:00 pm
Full Moon Hike @ Emmons Preserve | Kennebunkport | Maine | United States

Enjoy the magic of winter with a full moon hike at the Emmons Preserve! KCT Board Member, Russ Grady, will lead the group on a moderate 3 mile hike on the Trust’s trails. There will be several opportunities to stop along the way and enjoy the glow of the moon. Weather will dictate gear (snow shoes, poles, winter clothes, etc…). While we hope to use the moon light, bringing a flash light or headlamp is always a good idea. Feel free to bring your beverage of choice to enjoy in the headquarters after the hike. Meet at our headquarters located at 57 Gravelly Brook Road in Kennebunkport at 8pm. Free, all welcome!

Thanks to C.A. Smith Photography for his full moon photo taken in the Smith Preserve.
