POP UP ADVENTURE: Pink Moon Night Hike

ABOUT THE EVENT:
This walk is part of a series of walks that “pop up” on the calendar throughout the year. It gives members the opportunity to get out more and enjoy fresh air and friends.

Join us for an evening walk at the Oyster River Forest for a unique opportunity to listen for owls and other critters as dusk descends. This hike takes place 2 days before the full moon of the month which is the Pink Moon. Northern Native Americans call April’s full moon the pink moon after a species of early blooming wildflower. In other cultures, this moon is called the sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and the fish moon.

We will hike the Oyster River Forest and Spruce Hole Conservation Area in Durham. We will follow the Oyster River Trail to the Oyster River Bridge in UNH College Woods. This 3.5 mile round trip trail passes through an oak-pine forest, a restored meadow and shrub habitat, then winds through the forest along the Oyster River. Side trails lead along historic stonewalls, past an old foundation, and under huge white oak, shagbark hickory, and pitch pine trees. There will be many opportunities to listen for owls and other possible critters that inhabit the area at dusk, including peepers.

PLEASE be prepared for a portion of the walk to be after sunset. Bring flashlights, headlamps, and appropriate footwear (hiking boots are highly recommended) and clothing, as well as any items your dog may need for comfortable walking.

IS THIS EVENT GOOD FOR REACTIVE DOGS?
Reactive Dog Level 1-2. See our Comfort Chart for explanation. Due to the time of day we will be hiking the trail, we do not anticipate seeing many people or dogs. The trail is wide in most areas with places to step off if approached by another walker.
