Night Hike: Pink Moon & Lyrids Meteor Shower
Saturday, April 24 | 8:30 - 10:00 pm
Why is it called a “Pink Moon?”
April’s full moon often coincides with the blooming ground phlox, a pink flower that is common throughout North America.
The night sky and the cosmos have been a source of inspiration and amazement throughout human history. Join us for an evening at Pleasant Hill and explore the starry sky! On this gentle hike through the Preserve, take in the wonders of the prairie and forest at night while discovering some of the mysteries and curiosities of the universe. Along the way, we will observe constellations and learn fun facts about the moon and its importance in our lives.
Annual Passholder: $10
Non-Annual Passholder: $15
Participants should meet at the Welcome Center by 8:00 pm. All participants should bring flashlights to assist in returning to vehicles or rooms at the conclusion of the evening.
