DEADLINE TO REGISTER: BY MIDNIGHT, TWO DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT (FEB. 6)
Every full moon has a special kind of energy. February is a transitional time with the brisk winds, deep snow, and our patience as we wait for the spring thaw. The essence of the Snow Moon, also called the Hunger Moon is about hope and embracing change.
Grab some snowshoes or hiking boots and join us for a unique hiking experience. We will stop periodically to gaze at the full moon (howling optional) and take in the stillness of winter.
Incorporated into this hike will be an educational component about hiking after dusk and how you can keep yourself safe..
It is mandatory that everyone carry their own light source whether a head lamp or flashlight. Cell phone flashlights are acceptable but please note that extreme cold can cause cell phone batteries to fail.
