Full Moon Hike, Whychus Canyon Preserve

September 30, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Join Carol Moorehead on a full moon exploration at Whychus Canyon Preserve.

Join Deschutes Land Trust and Carol Moorehead on a full moon exploration at Whychus Canyon Preserve. The Native Americans had names for each of the full moons–September is the Full Corn Moon or Harvest Moon because it marked the end of the harvest. Come explore the canyon under the light of the Harvest Moon using a variety of senses. We’ll listen for and, if lucky, even see nocturnal animals as we hike Whychus Canyon Preserve at night with only the aid of our headlamps and the full moon. Registration is required and opens 1 month prior to the event.
