Harwich Conservation Trust Hosts Cultural and Natural Nightlife Walk

New Years Moon 2016 KAHARWICH – Sponsored by the Harwich Conservation Trust and the Eastham Conservation Foundation, join 12th generation Cape Codder Todd Kelley and Native American Marcus Hendricks on a walk exploring the cultural and natural nightlife of Cape Cod.

Learn about the lifeways of the First People as well as old Cape Codders in relation to the rhythms of native plants and animals at dusk and during the night.

Learn why the First People told stories at night and why they fished at night among other things.

This walk takes place around the time of the June full moon, also called the “Strawberry Moon”.

Explore the many ways that the natural world flourishes after daytime birds and animals go to bed and dawn and dusk wildlife as well as nocturnal wildlife become active.

The walk also celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service.

The walk takes place on June 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and the cost is $15 per person with pre-registration required.

Participants are asked to bring walking/hiking shoes, long-sleeve shirts, lightweight pants, water and a flashlight.

The moderate walk includes a woodland trail, some paved bike trail, a wooden footbridge and some soft beach sand.

The walk is recommended for those aged 12 years and older.

For more information on the walk and to register, go to harwichconservationtrust.org.
