Field Trip – Full Moon at Bennington Lake – Monday, October 22nd

Full Moon at Bennington Lake
Monday, October 22, 6:30 p.m. to approximately 8:00 p.m.
Leader: Chris Howard

Join Chris as he leads the group in a leisurely walk around the end of Bennington Lake. See the lake and surrounding areas immersed in shimmering golden moonlight as the full moon creeps higher in the sky.

The moonlight should be bright enough that the trail will be easily visible without a flashlight. Listen and look for geese and ducks on the lake, and Great-horned Owls as they hoot to each other from distant perches with deep, vibrating hoots that echo across the lake. On the far side of the lake we may see and hear beavers as they slap the water with their tail warning others of our presence. There will be other sights and sounds, as well, that are unique to clear, cool night air which are enhanced in full moonlight.

All ages are encouraged to attend and you do not need to be a member of Blue Mountain Audubon to attend. We will meet at the Bennington Lake parking lot near the boat launch. Dress for the evening night air and bring a flashlight, which you hopefully won’t need. If the sky is overcast hiding the full moon, the walk will be postponed to another full moon evening. If you have any questions, call or e-mail Chris at 509-386-5827 and
