Full Sturgeon Moon Hike with Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt: All Ages
Cosponsored by the South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) and Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt
Hike Leader: South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
Join the South Fork Natural History Museum and Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt on a leisurely-paced, one-hour hike through open-field trails. Native American fishing tribes are given credit for naming this moon, since sturgeon were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. After the hike, stay for light refreshments and convivial conversation.
