About Dunes by the Light of the Full Moon

Join us for a brisk, warming night hike through the dunes of the Crane Wildlife Refuge. Transformed and illuminated by the glow of the full moon reflected off the snow, the dunes are an eerily beautiful landscape.

Bring water and dress for the weather to maximize comfort. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp, but we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes.

January: 1/29 – The Full Wolf Moon, named for the howls of the hungry wolves prowling amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter.

February: 2/26 and 2/27 – The Snow Moon, named for a month of traditionally cold temperatures and heavy snow.

March: 3/27 and 3/28 – The Worm Moon, named for the thawing ground in the almost-spring, when worms start moving. Sometimes referred to as the Sap moon to mark the flow of sap for sugaring.

Please be aware that for public health and saftey during the COVID-19 pandemic, we require all staff, volunteers, and guests (over 2 years old) to wear a mask at all times during this event, including while hiking. We have reduced our event capacities to better facilitate social distancing. Please do not attend if you have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, have traveled out of New England in the last 2 weeks, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Thank you!

Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that thunder and lightning will be present, we may cancel a trip up to one hour in advance. If the forecast is for steady and heavy rain all day, we may decide to cancel by 3pm on the day before the event. If either of these happens, all registrants will be notified by email and/or phone with as much notice as possible and issued full refunds.

The starting location and other relevant details for all hikes, kayak paddles, and river boat trips will be emailed to registrants before the event at the address provided upon registration.
