November is the apex of Maine’s Dark Season. The fall foliage is gone, the birds have flown south, the days are short, and there is seldom much snow to reflect the sunlight that does reach the ground. But don’t stay home and curse the darkness! Brisk air, firm ground and a lack of bugs make this a great season for a walk, before or after sunset.

Join us on Thursday, November 14th at 6:30 for a full moon walk in Walden-Parke Preserve. With the trees bare (and some cooperation from the weather) the moon should cast enough light that we can follow the wide trail without flashlights. We’ll stop at times to listen to the sounds of the night, and see how many we can identify. Wear sturdy, non-skid boots as the leaves tend to be slippery.

Meet at the BLT kiosk at the end of Tamarack Rd off of Walden-Parke Way.
