This month’s full moon is called the Snow Moon because the heaviest snows fall in February. Hunting is very difficult, and so some Native American tribes called this the Hunger Moon.
Winter’s chilly weather brings with it unique hiking opportunities, and Darke County Parks is going to grab them. On February 9th at 6:30pm join a naturalist at Eidson Woods Preserve on the corner of St. Rt. 502 West and Palestine-Union City Rd. to enjoy the full snow moon. Remember to dress for the cold evening temperatures and to bring a flashlight if you choose. In the event of cloudy skies, call the Nature Center to find out about possible cancellation. For more information about this or any of the other exciting hikes in this season’s series or other park district programs, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
