Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center

Time: Thu, Dec 20, 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center

Description:

Midcoast Conservancy will offer a full moon hike (or snowshoe, if we get some white stuff!) at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. Enjoy a crisp evening illuminated by the glow of the moon and discover a new way of being in the woods. At night, sounds become more pronounced; listen for owls and the rustling of nighttime foragers along the trail.
Meet at the gate at HVNC at 4:30 pm. Dress warmly, wear shoes with good grips and a hiking stick if desired, snack, drink and flashlight or headlamp. Your guide will lead the hike to shore of Little Dyer Pond, to watch the moon rise over the water. The hike will be about 40 minutes each way, and of moderate ease. Snowshoes are available by reservation, or bring your own, if we have snow.
