Full Moon Stroll

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Now is your chance to walk Bird Park after dark! Using the light from the December full moon, sometimes referred to as the “Full Cold Moon” or “Long Night’s Moon," we’ll navigate around the park listening for the sounds of nature in winter and observing how different the park appears at night. Enjoy the magic of a peaceful winter’s evening and the soft glow of the full moon shining on Bird Park. Rebekah Bartlett, president of the Astronomical society of Southern New England, will bring her scope, so we all can enjoy a good view of the full moon!

Meet at the park entrance at the parking lot of the Union Congregational Church (55 Rhoades Avenue, East Walpole). Some of the paths we’ll be walking are unpaved and/or uneven. Please bring a flashlight, just in case the light of the moon isn’t sufficient to light your way!

Please contact Maura (mogara@thetrustees.org; 508-668-6136) with questions or to check for cancellation in case of inclement weather.
