Field Trip-Full Moon Walk at Bennington Lake

Friday, May 17, 8:00 p.m. to approximately 9:30 p.m.
Leader: Chris Howard


Back by popular demand is another moon-lit walk around the end of Bennington Lake.  Join Chris as he leads the group in a leisurely walk to 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 look for Great-horned Owls silhouetted against the moon-lit sky.  On the far side of the lake we may see and hear beavers as they slap the water with their tails warning others of our presence.  There will be other sights and sounds, as well, that are unique to clear night air 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.  There is no pre-registration required; just show up.  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 you have any questions, call or e-mail Chris at 509-386-5827 and chrish734@gmail.com
