Coronavirus Update from The Trustees
Cancelled -- Dunes by the Light of the SUPER Pink Moon

Tuesday, April 7
6-9PM

This event has been cancelled.

Join us for a night hike through the dunes of the Crane Wildlife Refuge, and then warm up around a beach campfire! Transformed and illuminated by the glow of the full moon, the dunes are an eerily beautiful landscape.

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.

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. Bring water and dress for the weather to maximize comfort. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp, but we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes. 

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 and issued full refunds.

The starting location and other relevant details for all hikes, kayak paddles, and river boat trips will be emailed to registrants 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 right.
