Time: Fri, Feb 26, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Hidden Valley Nature Center
Enjoy the unique sounds of the woods in winter on a full moon hike at Hidden Valley Nature Center. Nature will light the trail as hikers take in the howls of distant coyotes, hooting owls and the rustle of creatures in the underbrush. Howie Nielsen, world renowned birder with local roots and expertise, will entertain and inform as he attempts to call in the owls. Nationally renown bird artist Jonathan Alderfer will accompany the group as well.
Participants will meet at the parking lot of the nature center; the hike leader will guide a walk to Little Dyer Pond and back, for a total distance of about two and half miles.
If snow is on the ground, participants who don’t have their own snowshoes may borrow a pair. Registration is required; participants who need snowshoes should arrive 15 minutes early. Hikers are asked to not bring dogs on this hike, as they may scare off wildlife along the way.
Bring appropriate footwear (cleats or snowshoes, if possible), headlamp, warm clothes and water. Hiking stick or ski poles are helpful.
No dogs, please.
