Join Us ! Full Moon Night Sky Cross Country Ski - Snow Shoe Hike - Saturday, January 31, 2015
Join us for our popular Full Moon Night Sky Cross Country Ski & Snow Shoe Hike at the home of Jan and Tom Wolski in Cambridge, New York. The event, open to the general public and all members and supporters of the Battenkill Conservancy, looks to foster an appreciation and awareness of the watershed's recreational assets.
Bill Frederick of the Salem Astronomy Club will share his expertise on pointing out the night sky highlights and will be setting up a high-precision telescope to identify the winter constellations. Moonlight and votive lanterns will guide skiers, snowshoers and hikers along the wooded trails. Apple cider, hot chocolate and winter snacks will be offered around a roaring bonfire to complete the evening's activities.
Attendees should meet at 4 McMillan Road in Cambridge, NY at 7:30 PM. Simple food or drink contributions are welcome. The event is open to the general public and free to all current BkC members and supporters. Additional information on discounted equipment rentals, directions and pre-registation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
