Join us to celebrate winter, fitness and the blue moon! On average once every 2 ½ years, two full moons occur in the same month. The second full moon is known as the blue moon. Join us to experience snowshoeing under the light of the moon and to learn another definition of a blue moon. Natural history of the night, quotes and moon lore will be shared with hot drinks around our cozy, pellet stove making the perfect ending to an invigorating winter evening.   Wear wind pants or gaiters if you have them, dress in warm layers that can be shed as we get moving, and bring a water bottle to take on the trail. Warm, waterproof footwear is essential. All levels of experience are welcome for this moderately strenuous two mile outdoor adventure.
