Harvest Full Moon Hike at Weeden Farm – POSTPONED
TBD (6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.)

Celebrate RI Land Trust Days with a walk in the moonlight!

In the days before tractor lights, the full Harvest Moon in September helped farmers to gather their crops despite the diminishing daylight hours. We’ll use the beautiful glow of September’s Harvest Moon to illuminate the trails beside Weeden Farm’s thriving agricultural fields on a special guided hike at twilight. We’ll discuss the history of Weeden Farm, listen for owls and other nocturnal wildlife, and more.

Guests are encouraged to enjoy the campfire and bring their own s’mores ingredients or other snacks to enjoy.

Free, $10 suggested donation.
