Full Moon Hike at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge
Moonlight isn’t guaranteed, but there’s plenty to learn about New Jersey’s Great Swamp and the natural world at night on this full-moon hike through an area of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge that is usually off-limits to the general public. Maybe we’ll hear barred owls, or flying squirrels, or even coyotes calling out in the dark! Sharpen your senses as we play some games designed to learn more about what it means to be out after dark without a flashlight. To ensure your participation in this event, please PRE-REGISTER right now at https://greatswamp.ejoinme.org/?tabid=387769. Registration is limited to 20 participants. Permission to access the Management Area of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is granted only during the time specified (7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.) and only in the company of the designated GSWA guide.
