Looking for things to do this weekend? Look no further! This weekend at the Trustees, explore all that winter has to offer in Massachusetts.

Saturday, February 24 marks the next full moon of 2024, and we hope you’ll join us to take in its wintry glow!

On the North Shore, head to Appleton Farms in Ipswich and Hamilton for the Full Moon & Folklore Walk, to immerse yourself in a nighttime adventure, guided only by the glow of the full moon and hear folklore from around the world that celebrates her presence. Want to see how the beach and dunes of Castle Neck are transformed and illuminated by the glow of the full moon? Bring the family to the CraneExplorer: Family Full Moon Hike in the Dunes, at the Crane Estate in Ipswich, or take a bit of a longer hike at CraneOutdoors: Dunes by the Light of the Full Moon.

On the South Shore, join our team at World’s End in Hingham for a tranquil evening walk under the light of the moon. Closer to the Cape, enjoy a tranquil walk under the moon stars and listen as wildlife becomes more active after dusk at the Lyman Reserve in Bourne, Wareham and Plymouth during the Full Moon Hike on the Bay.

Other Full Moon fun includes a Full Moon Snowshoe Hike at Notchview in Windsor, and a Full Snow Moon Hike at Powisset Farm in Dover.
