Full Moon and Folklore Hike

March 23, 2016 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Join us as we celebrate the Algonquin Worm Moon with a night hike through the dunes of the Crane Wildlife Refuge! At the time of this almost-spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.  At the end of our walk we’ll warm ourselves with hot cider around a bonfire.

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2 ½-3 miles. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp; we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes. Pre-registration is required. Pre-registration required. Members: $10 Nonmembers: $15; suggested ages 13 and older.
