New Moon Night Hike with GSWA

Come hike the trails of the Wildlife Observation Center under a new moon, when the stars are at their brightest! A new moon is the first lunar phase, which means the it will not be visible at all. But don't worry, just because it's dark out doesn't mean the inhabitants of the woods have gone to sleep. During this guided hike, we will take advantage of the quiet, crisp February air by listening for the nighttime creatures of Harding Township, like owls, as they become more active for the mating season.  Dress for the weather - waterproof boots are recommended. Registration is required. Sign-up online at www.GreatSwamp.org or call 973-538-3500. This event is free for GSWA members, non-members: suggested donation of $10 for adults 18 and over/$5 for children 6-17 years.
