HOPE- Georges River Land Trust will host a guided snowshoe walk in the moonlight on Sunday, February 17 at 6 p.m. on a private conservation easement on the shore of Mansfield Pond in Hope.
This event is free and all are welcome to attend, but registration is required. You may register by calling the land trust at (207) 594-5166.
In the case of inclement weather, the one-mile adventure will take place February 18.
Come out for the full moon, listen for owls, and see tracks of other local wildlife in the snow. The group will head out through the woods, cross a moonlit meadow, and if conditions are right, walk out on frozen Mansfield Pond for a view of the Central Highlands by the light of the full moon.
Afterward, hosts will warm you up with a hot beverage and a sweet treat at their home.
This event is limited to 25 guests and is suitable for children. Please call (207) 594-5166 to sign up by February 15. Carpooling is encouraged and registered guests will receive an email with directions to the site.
Dress warmly, bring your own snowshoes or ice grippers/cleats, and headlight or flashlight.
