“Saw it written and I saw it say, Pink moon is on its way” – Nick Drake

We launch our full Moon hike Series on a stunning night with the April “Pink Moon”, which will be the first of two spring Supermoons, (the second on May 26).

We’ll use the moonlight to guide us on a hike through the woods and meadows of Boxers’ Trail in East Fairmount Park. Learn what wildlife is lurking in the woods in the park after dark. And of course, we’ll discuss the lunar cycles and the meaning of the Pink Moon.
