Bring your kids out for a family full moon adventure in the dunes of the Crane Wildlife refuge, ending with a fun sparkler dance party! This is an earlier, shorter, slower full moon hike experience, perfect for both younger and older participants. We will stick to a short dunes loop with stops for fun dunes facts, enjoy the sunset on the beach, and play in the twilight with sparklers.

 September's Full Moon, like most full moons, goes by many names. It's often called the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time for harvesting corn. Similarly, it is also called the Barley Moon because this is the time when ripened barley is harvested and threshed.

This "family" ticket price includes 2 adults and 2 children. If you have more than 5 people in your family please purchase 2 tickets. 

 

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand (which makes for a more strenuous hike), for approximately 2 miles. Bring water and dress for the weather with sturdy shoes to maximize comfort. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp, but the moon is usually plenty bright and we'll want some moments to fully enjoy the eery beauty without light. 

Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that thunder and lightning will be present, we may cancel a trip up to one hour in advance. If the forecast is for steady and heavy rain all day, we may decide to cancel by 3pm on the day before the event. If either of these happens, all registrants will be notified by email and/or phone with as much notice as possible.
