Full Moon – The Corn Planting Moon – Hike

What goes “bump” in the night? Who makes that strange sound? Wonder no longer when you join Naturalist Lauren Cole at 8:00 p.m. for a Full Moon Hike at Chief Logan State Park. With the full moon to light our way, the walk is about West Virginia’s nocturnal denizens: owls, raccoons, bats, coyotes, moths and more. Are animals more or less active under a full moon? We’ll find out.

The hike concludes before 10:00 p.m. During a Full Moon, the moon is 100% illuminated as seen from Earth and is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. Please wear closed toe shoes or boots.

The Full Moon Hike is a Kids to Parks Day (and parents) activity and is free to attend and open to the public and suitable for all ages. Youth 14 and younger must be accompanied by an adult. The Full Moon Hike is also a YPP activity.
