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.
