Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center

Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center

Time: Thu, Dec 20, 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center


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.



Winter Solstice Restorative Yoga & Reiki @ Riverbend Yoga
Dec 21 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Winter Solstice Restorative Yoga & Reiki @ Riverbend Yoga | Yarmouth | Maine | United States

This Winter Solstice + Full Moon is an opportunity to tune inward + celebrate living with the changing seasons. Join Kelly Rich for a cozy + candlelit evening to remember on your mat. You will be offered time to set intentions, a soothing restorative yoga practice and hands on Reiki healing to soothe your soul (and your nervous system). These 90 minutes are spent seated and in reclined positions and are skillfully designed to alleviate any discomfort, tension + stress. Gift yourself (and maybe a loved one, too) a chance to pause, reset, restore + nourish during the busyness of the holiday season.

No experience necessary. Pre-registration required as this will sell out.
