“Chancing to take a memorable walk by moonlight some years ago, I resolved to take more such walks, and make acquaintance with another side of Nature.” -Night and Moonlight by Henry David Thoreau

Join us under the Full Moon at the Fruitlands Museum for this Transcendental Night Hike. We will take to the trails to discover nature by night and explore the elements, sites, and sounds that awaken when the sun sets, pausing along the way to hear and contemplate passages from Thoreau’s 1863 essay “Night and Moonlight.” Thoreau describes, “As for the moon, I had seen her only as it were through a crevice in a shutter, occasionally. Why not walk a little way in her light?” 

Trustees Member $9. Nonmember $15. 

Please note that space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Recommended for ages 12 and up. 

In the event of inclement weather, this program’s rain date is scheduled for Wednesday, November 13th. All registered guests will be contacted via email regarding any weather updates. Updates will also be posted on facebook.
