SOFO: Full Sturgeon Moon Hike with Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt

Thursday, August 15, 2019

8:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Walk Leader: Dai Dayton, President, Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt
Cosponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt (FLPG)

Join FLPG and SOFO on a leisurely paced one-hour hike through open-
field trails on this hike in Vineyard Field. The Native American
fishing tribes are given credit for naming this moon, since sturgeon
was most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the
full Red Moon because, as the moon rises, it appears reddish through
any sultry haze. Afterward, stay for light refreshments and convivial
conversation. This is a free program.
