Once in a Blue Moon Hike is the name of this single-session program for ages eight and older. After letting their eyes adjust to the moonlight, hikers will experience the park after dark. Along the way, the group will enjoy shadows, listen for owls, and finish with a hot drink. Full moon hikes will happen even on overcast nights. Be sure to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
