Sunday, March 8, from 7:30-9:30 pm, Midcoast Conservancy will offer a full moon snowshoe at Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. Enjoy a crisp evening illuminated by the glow of the moon and discover a new way of being in the woods. At night, sounds become more pronounced; listen for owls and the rustling of nighttime foragers along the trail.
Meet at the gate at HVNC at 7:30 pm. Dress warmly, wear shoes with good grips and bring hiking stick if desired, snack, drink and flashlight or headlamp. Guide will lead the hike to shore of Little Dyer Pond, to watch the moon rise over the water. The hike will be about 40 minutes each way, and of moderate ease. Snowshoes are available by reservation or bring your own, if it's snowy.
