Ok, not quite a full moon- but we can still get out under a BIG moon- and get you psyched for the supermoon lunar eclipse happening on Sunday of the same weekend! Join us for a Friday afternoon/ evening hike under the moon at Holt Pond. We’ll snowshoe out to the bog and back, with headlamps (or without!) and enjoy the winter moon. Please be prepared with extra layers, snacks, water, and headlamp. Let us know if you’d like to borrow some snowshoes! Let alanna@leamaine.org know if you are interested in joining in the fun! Please note that winter parking for Holt Pond is on the corner of Perley and Chaplins Mill Roads, please carpool if possible!

Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center
Jan 20 @ 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Full Moon Hike @ Hidden Valley Nature Center | Jefferson | Maine | United States

Midcoast Conservancy will offer a full moon hike (or snowshoe, depending on conditions) 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/boots with good grips and a hiking stick if desired, snack, drink and flashlight or headlamp. Guide Chuck Dinsmore 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.

Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists
Jan 22 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Yoga and Cancer class @ New England Cancer Specialists | Kennebunk | Maine | United States

Yoga and Cancer classes are different from regular yoga classes you would typically find at your local studio. They are even different from classes that are called “gentle” or “restorative.” Yoga and Cancer was specifically designed to provide therapeutic benefits to cancer patients and survivors in a relaxed and supportive environment. Specific movements and postures along with mindful breathing and meditation techniques help manage stress and support the immune system. Yoga and Cancer will help you build strength, improve flexibility and range of motion and support the health of the cardiac and lymphatic systems.
