Full Moon Walk

Sunday, November 29, 5 pm or Monday, November 30, 5:30 pm
Dike Road, Eldorado Road

Join with some adventurous Audubon members, as we walk the dike at Eldorado Marsh in the moonlight. Discover the magic of a nighttime walk, as our eyes adjust to lower light and our ears search out sounds in the silence. We will be on the lookout for owls during the hike, potentially hearing Great Horned Owls, Barred Owls, and Eastern Screech Owls. Avid birder, Adam Knueppel, will help us identify their calls.

The full moon rises about 5 pm on Sunday, November 29, reaching fullness at 5:30 am Monday.

We will meet at 5 pm, Sunday in the parking lot at the end of Dike Road on the eastern side of Eldorado Marsh. (The sun sets around 5 pm in late November.) If the weather is cloudy or inclement, we will delay until Monday evening at the same place, but the time will be delayed until 5:30 pm, because the moonrise is later. We will cancel the entire event for both nights if there are too many clouds.

Dress for the weather. Walking sticks or ski poles and a flashlight might be handy for hiking in semi-dark conditions.
