Additional Info:
About ten months out of the year, Durango Nature Studies takes groups of 10-15 people on two-hour full moon hikes at various locations throughout the area. A trained naturalist leads these hikes and participants learn about the local flora and fauna, current happenings in the natural world, nighttime senses and astronomy events.

Full moon hikes are not an exercise in fitness. Instead, they a chance to slow down and notice the cooling, quieting world around us. Hikes are geared to the slowest member of the group, and are generally led with no specific destination in mind, other than a good place to view the rising moon. They are recommended to those of moderate fitness level or above. Families are welcome, but please remember that this may not be the best hike for children younger than age 9 (though only a parent knows how far their child can hike without becoming bored or exhausted).

Please note
No dogs allowed.
