Please join me and Rondia for a potential once-in-a-lifetime event: a Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike and Total Lunar Eclipse with complete visibility on Sunday evening, May 15, from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. The next time a total lunar eclipse will be visible in Ventura County before 1 a.m. or later at night is August 6, 2036.

We’ll gradually walk about 1.5 miles on a well-used dirt road with gradual elevation gain to a vista point above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the sunset, moonrise, and total eclipse.  The sun will sink below the horizon at about 7:40 p.m. and the full moon will rise shortly after that at about 7:55 p.m. It will already be in partial eclipse by then, reaching maximum total eclipse at 9:11 p.m.

After witnessing this special astronomical event, we’ll walk back by flashlight, returning to the trailhead between 9:30 and 9:45 p.m.

On the way up, we’ll stop along the trail to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants including:

Blue Elderberry
Coastal Sagebrush
Prickly-Pear Cactus
Horehound
Black Sage
Purple Sage and
Chia Sage

REGISTRATION INFO:
The cost for the hike is $35/person. Senior, student and child discounts are available by request. Paid registrants will receive a confirmation email a few days prior to the event with all necessary info, including what to bring, weather forecast, and directions to the trailhead. Afterwards, they also will receive a follow-up email with a list of all plants and wildlife seen.
