Join The Trustees of Reservations as they celebrate the September's Corn Moon! Bring your kids out for a family full moon adventure in the dunes of the Crane Wildlife refuge, ending with a fun sparkler party! This is an earlier, shorter, slower full moon hike experience, perfect for both younger and older participants. We will stick to a short dunes loop with stops for fun dunes facts, enjoy the sunset on the beach, and play in the twilight with sparklers.

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand (which makes for a more strenuous hike), for approximately 2 miles. Bring water and dress for the weather with sturdy shoes to maximize comfort. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp, but the moon is usually plenty bright and we'll want some moments to fully enjoy the eery beauty without light.
