On Friday evening, July 23, from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m., I’ll lead a Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the sunset followed by the moonrise. We’ll gradually hike about 1.25 miles each way to a vista point with some elevation gain on a well-worn, dirt fire road with some uneven footing in places. Before sunset, we’ll stop along the way to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants, possibly including:
Black & Purple Sage
After witnessing the sunset and moonrise, we’ll walk back to the trailhead by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead at about 9:30 p.m.
If things go according to plan at the state level, California’s economy will fully reopen on June 15. That will allow us to walk without masks and distancing. If not we will continue the COVID Prevention Plan I have had in place for the past year (attendance would be limited to 12 participants, temperatures would be checked on arrival, face coverings would be required, and we would maintain 6 feet of physical distance at all times).
Rain or chance of thunderstorms will cancel the hike. No dogs or smoking, please.
The cost of the hike is $35. Please use the REGISTER button at top or bottom of this page to sign up before completing your payment with the PayPal button or personal check to secure your space. Please note: the PayPal payment will include their $1.32 fee. Once you register you will receive instructions to mail a check if you prefer not to use PayPal. Paid reservations are refundable up to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20. After that, if I receive your cancellation with enough time to fill your space and I’m able to do so, you will receive a refund.
Paid registrants will receive a confirmation email prior to the hike with all necessary info, including weather forecast and parking directions. They will also receive a follow-up email afterwards with a list of all plants and wildlife seen and other notes.
If the event sells out, PayPal will not accept your payment. You will see a message that says this event “is not available at this time” and you will be returned to this page. If that happens, be sure to click on the REGISTER button below to sign up for the waiting list. If spaces become available they will be filled based on time of registration.
