The moon bathed its magic on the land, and all who experienced it were forever changed. What had been hidden, was revealed, and nothing was ever the same again.
Let the jar candle that you carry and the moon overhead light your way into this early spring night. Listen for the owls to speak. Watch for the raccoons as they come out to explore. Smell the dampness of the forest floor as it rises up to greet you.
Wear footwear suitable for trail walking and dress appropriately for whatever the weather might bring. All ages are welcome with the understanding that this is a silent, meditative experience. Because this is an after hours program and the arboretum will be closed to the general public, please plan to arrive a few minutes early as the gates will close promptly at 6:30 PM.
Pre-registration is required.
