Full Sturgeon Moon Hike
August 25, 8:30 p.m.
The Native American fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this moon, since sturgeon were most readily caught during August. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. Join Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and SoFo on this family-friendly, leisurely-paced hike through open-field trails. After the one-hour hike, guests enjoy light refreshments. Free.
