Nature in Winter

January 7th, 2008

This winter the Town Shop will offer many opportunities to get out of the house and into the woods on skis or snowshoes (check the calendar), including a 3 day winter camping trip. (February 20-22) Cross country skis and snowshoes are available for free loan. (Ask DV)

By the light of the Moon

Beaver Lake Nature Center

By Lynne Perrine*

This winter the full moon dates are perfect for moonlit outings in January and February. As long as there is adequate snow cover, the Nature Center will remain open around the third weekend of each month until 9pm to give skiers and snowshoers an opportunity to enjoy the snow at night. You will notice that each month we will be open several nights before the actual night of the full moon. That is because the moon rises earlier on those nights and will better illuminate the trails. So grab your skis or snowshoes and get out for one, two, or all six of the moonlit evenings!

Dates: January 18, 19, 20 & February 14, 15, 16 (The trails will remain open until 9am on these evening as long as there is adequate snow cover.)
