The sparkle of the full moon on a freshly fallen blanket of snow illuminates the forest like nothing else. With only the moon as our guide, we will hike through the sanctuary woods and enjoy this magical time. Since early January is often one of the quietest times of the year, we should be able to hear the hoots of owls and the howls of coyotes. The light of the moon will also allow us to catch glimpses of nocturnal animals that usually move about in complete darkness. We will then return to the Barn to warm up with some hot chocolate!
