Full Hunter’s Moon Hike, Cosponsored by the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt
Hike Leader: Jean Dodds, Secretary, Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt
Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reasons. The leaves are falling from trees, the deer are fattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead. Because the fields were traditionally harvested in late September or early October, hunters could easily see fox and other animals that come out to eat the fallen grains. Join us for this leisurely paced one-hour hike in Vineyard Field, the field behind the South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) and afterward for some convivial conversation and refreshments in the moonlight.
This program is free and for all ages.
