Enjoy a magical evening excursion as day becomes night underneath May’s “Flower Moon” on MPEC’s first full moon hike of 2015. The twilight hike will be Sunday, May 31st at 6:30 pm
Led by Ranger Dave, this will be a fun evening of walking and enjoying nature sightings.
Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Also, bring along plenty of water, and maybe a snack on these moderately strenuous hikes that are educational and fun. Unless otherwise noted, most hikes last from two to three hours and are appropriate for adults and children over 12.
This program is free for members and $5 for non-members.
