Moon-rise Hike Planned at Coast Guard Beach

WELLFLEET – The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is encouraging members of the public to take part in a moon-rise hike next week at Coast Guard Beach in Eastham.

Hike along the sandy shore at Coast Guard Beach as the moon rises up from the Atlantic Ocean.

Use your senses to experience nature at the magical time of twilight, giving you a rare opportunity to view and hear the region’s nocturnal wildlife.

Participants are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to walk up to 2 miles in soft sand.

Consider the weather in selecting your attire and you are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp if you are so inclined.

The group will meet at the parking lot at Coast Guard Beach promptly at 6 pm on Thursday, October 5th. The event is expected to last about an hour and a half.

Tickets for Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary members will cost only $8, non-members pay $10. For more information or to secure your ticket visit
