On the first date of the three-day Winter Solstice period, take a walk in the surprisingly bright Quarter Moon light with Amy Martin, the Moonlady and author of Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth, and Don Young, steward of Tandy Hills. Before, during, and after the walk-and-talk, Chris Emory will offer viewing of the Moon through his Moon telescope and talk about how he as a photographer captures the night sky.
During the walk, Amy will guide participants into a deeper appreciation of the Moon by exploring the nature of moonlight and speaking some Moon haikus. We’ll stay aware for wildlife, including owls, which are more active on Quarter Moons than Full Moons. She’ll relay some of her favorite interesting Moon facts and insights ranging from synchrony and the formation of tides and life on Earth, to Moon holy days and gardening by the Moon. Plus plenty of Moon-shadow dancing, Moon song singing, and howling at the Moon.
Dress warm with a cap and thick socks.
(Wednesday) 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
