Full Moon & Folklore Hike

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!

According to The Farmer’s Almanac, April’s Full Pink Moon heralds the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. Among coastal tribes this moon was known as the Full Fish Moon, because shad swim upstream to spawn at this time of year. Other names are the Sprouting Grass Moon and the Egg Moon. Bring your own fun facts and folklore to share around the beach fire at the end of our hike!

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2½ -3 miles. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp; we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes. Pre-registration is required; you will receive an email a few days before the hike with information as to where to meet, etc. Suggested ages 13 and older.
