March's full moon coincides with the Vernal equinox and the first day of Spring. Known to Native Americans as the Worm Moon because of the earthworms that come out at the end of winter, it is also known as the Crow Moon or Sap Moon. Always a cause for celebration, we'll honor the first day of Spring by taking a brisk walk on the beach at sunset and a hike among the dunes of the Crane Wildlife Refuge.
Recommended for ages 13 & up. Pre-registration is required.
Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand (which makes for a more strenuous hike), for approximately 3-3½ 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.
Event details, including parking and meeting location will be emailed to registrants the day before the event at the address provided upon registration. If you prefer to have this information over the phone, please call us using the contact information provided at the left.
Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that we will be getting heavy, steady rain/snow during our hike, we will make the decision to cancel the program no later than 3pm the day before. We will also cancel if recent heavy snows also make the trails impassible without snowshoes. If the program is cancelled all registrants will be notified by email and phone with as much notice as possible.
