Event Details

Take a walk in the Full Moon light with Amy Martin, the Moonlady and author of Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth. After a poetic overview of the Moon, an audience-involving demonstration explains the lunar phases and why we only see one side of the Moon. After this, you’ll be a pro-level Moon watcher, able to predict where the Moon will be at any time. The talk concludes with material from the book on nocturnal denizens, their use of Moon phases, and how urban nature turns to darkness for safety and adaptation. Then off on a night hike with breaks for short raps ranging from synchrony and the formation of life on Earth to the qualities of moonlight. Plus plenty of Moon-shadow dancing, Moon song singing, and howling at the Moon.
