Next Full Moon Hike for ages eight and older is Jan. 29 in Ernie Miller Park

Full Moon

By the light of the silvery moon, join the Johnson County Park and Recreation District's Outdoor Education staff for a quiet hike to connect with nature and the night sounds. Physical distancing and COVID-19 safe practices will be encouraged during this program.

Full Moon Hike is the name of this single-session program for ages eight and older. Hikers will adjust their eyes to the moonlight and experience the park after dark. Enjoy shadows, listen for owls, and finish with a hot drink. This hike will happen even if the night is overcast. Be sure to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
