Full Sturgeon Moon Hike

August 25, 2018, 8:30 pm9:30 pm.


Cosponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).
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 one-hour, leisurely-paced hike through open-field trails. Afterward, stay for light refreshments and convivial conversation.

Please call 631-537-9735 for reservations and info about meeting place.
