Please note: This event is full. Please use the REGISTER link below to sign up for the waiting list. It’s not unusual for there to be cancellations.

On Wednesday evening, September 30, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., I’ll lead a Full Moon Sunset Herb Walk to a vista point above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the simultaneous sunset and moonrise. The sun will set at about 6:30 p.m. and the full moon will rise at about 6:45 p.m., giving us a perfect window of time to take it all in. Attendance will be limited to 12 participants, temperatures checked on arrival, face coverings will be required, and we will maintain 6 feet of physical distance at all times. Anyone with possible COVID-19 symptoms is asked stay home and a refund will be issued if you notify me of cancellation prior to 5:00 p.m. There will be no onsite book sales but I will offer free shipping for online orders of $25 or more for participants at this walk.
Note: The moon is full at 12:33 a.m. on October 1, making the evening of September 30 the closest time to the actual full moon, as well as an earlier, more convenient time to see it.
We’ll meet at the Shelf Road trailhead at the top of N. Signal Street between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. If you can’t make it right at 5:00 due to work schedule just let me know and we will arrange for you to meet us where will circle up near the trailhead. Then we’ll gradually walk about 1.25 miles to the vista point, stopping along the way to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants, including:
Purple Sage and
After witnessing the sunset and moonrise, we’ll walk back to the trailhead by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m.
