Full Moon-Evening Walks


Tuesday, July 19, 6:45 pm
7/19 walk is cancelled...my apologies

Evening walks will run whether clear or cloudy.  Beauty and summer's magic are promised either way.

Join my full moon/evening walks this summer for special glimpses of refuge wildlife, serenades of night song, and the memorable beauty of the "golden hour."  Toward the end of each walk, we will watch the moon rise together and walk back in its light.


Wear layers for changing temperatures and bring a small flashlight if your night vision, for the walk back, is poor.  Insect repellent is recommended, but please apply well away and down wind of others.

Each walk will last 1.5 - 2 hours.

Donations will be gratefully accepted.
