Harvest Hard'ack Hike (Beaver Moon) - November 12th - 6:00-7:00pm - Tuesday Cancelled due to snow storm, another hike will be scheduled.
Join us under a full Beaver Moon for a harvest hike to bring in the holiday season. November’s full Moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the Algonquin tribes and colonial Americans. The Native Americans used the monthly Moons and nature’s signs as a sort of calendar to track the seasons. Why this name? Back then, this was the month to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.
