Once a month, as the full moon glows, it seems safe to venture out into the dark while the moon makes shadows. You can still smell the flowers, feel the wind, hear the water, and sense the wildlife.
For the 13th year, the Bitterroot National Forest and the Bitter Root Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) offer a series of interpretive “Moon Walks” from June through October. These walks are based on the book by Francis Hammerstrom, “Walk When the Moon is Full “, which is about her children and the nature walks they took every month under the full moon.
The Bitterroot National Forest invites you to join interpreters and naturalists for our 2015 Walk by the Light of the Moon series. The programs begin at 7:00 pm on a Saturday near the full moon and last approximately 1 1/2 hours. For more information visit www.fs.usda.gov/bitterroot and click on “Learning Center” or call the Bitterroot National Forest at 406-363-7100. Topics that will be featured during the 2015 series will be posted soon!
