Under the ‘Cold’ Moon SUPERMOON Family Night Hike at Roaring Brook Nature Center!

Bundle up and join us for a guided woodland hike under the last ‘supermoon’ of 2016. The moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. This month’s moon is known by early Native American tribes as the Full Cold Moon because this is the time of year when the cold winter air settles in and the nights become long and dark. Cost: $5 members, $7 nonmembers. Pre-registration required.
