2024 Night Hike: Snow Moon
Saturday, February 24, 2024 | 6-7:30 p.m.
Why is it called a “Snow Moon?”
The explanation behind February’s full moon name is a fairly straightforward one: it’s known as the Snow Moon due to the typically heavy snowfall that occurs in February. On average, February is the United States’ snowiest month, according to data from the National Weather Service.
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 winter prairie and forest at night while discovering some of the mysteries and curiosities of the universe. Learn about the Shakers' relationship to this special place. Along the way we will observe the marvelous night sky and explore its importance in both past and present! We'll end the evening with a warming cup of hot chocolate around a cheerful bonfire at our amphitheater.
