Ney Center Full Moon Walk

Close to 20 people showed up for the Ney Nature Center’s Full Moon Hike on Wednesday, Oct. 24. The hike began as the last remnants of day were waning, and participants enjoyed a peaceful hike through the prairie grass part of the Ney Center. They were invited to try and guess what color marker Josh Sweet used to write on a paper in the dark; heard “How Fisher Went to the Skyland,” an Ojibwe story about winter; and learned about animals like owls and bats. Children learned about echolocation through a fun Marco Polo-type game, with one kid saying “Bat” and another responding “Moth” while trying to avoid getting tagged. Afterward, it was time to warm up with hot chocolate around a roaring campfire. (By Rachel Wittrock)
