Full Moon Walk and Caterpillar Foray
Sunday, July 25, 8 - 9:30 p.m.
This is the summer night when thousands of white lotuses light up the marshlands at Great Meadows in the moonlight. Enjoy views from the observation tower and along the dike trail while learning more about the nighttime landscape. I'lll be joined by Sam Jaffe, local expert on Massachusetts caterpillars, who will guide walkers in sleuthing out some of these wonderful creatures in the wildflowers, shrubs, and trees along the way.
No pre-registration required.
$5/person voluntary donation for each walk will be gratefully accepted. For evening walk, wear long pants, socks, and shoes and bring a handheld flashlight.
