Flower Moon Night Hike at Picton Wildlife Sanctuary - Sunday, April 29

Posted on: April 29, 2018

Have you ever wanted to take a night hike during a Flower Moon? Well, here comes your chance to do it…Sunday, April 29! Tina Fiorani, NBLT member and volunteer, will be leading the hike at the George and Lillian Picton Wildlife Sanctuary in White Haven promptly at 7:00 p.m.

Late spring will showcase the many plants found in a mixed forest along with special plants suited only to wetlands and ponds. As we venture up to the top of Split Rock and down the trail to finish around Lillian’s Pond, we will see many animals, birds, and frogs such as raccoon, deer, owls, and wood frogs. If we are lucky, we will hear the chorus of singing peepers while gazing at the full moon shining over the pond.

This 2-mile hike is rated as moderate. The trail is a typical woodsy trail with some trip hazards such as rocks and tree roots, therefore, wear sturdy shoes or boots! Please bring a flashlight and bottled water.
