Full Moon Paddle on Little Dyer Pond @  Hidden Valley Nature Center

Spend the evening in the glow of the moon! Hike into Little Dyer Cabin at Hidden Valley Nature Center, where a rack of canoes await their passengers. Drift around the lake for an hour or so, then head back to the Barn for something to drink before hitting the road for home. A Midcoast Conservancy volunteer leader will meet you at the gate by the parking lot and accompany the group for the evening. There is a limit of 12 paddle participants with some space for riders in the middle!
