On Tuesday evening, July 12, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m., I’ll lead a July Supermoon Sunset Nature Hike above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the simultaneous moonrise and sunset. A “supermoon” occurs when the moon is unusually close to the Earth, making it appear very large. Technically, the moon will reach complete fullness at 11:38 a.m. on Wednesday morning which makes Tuesday night the best time to see it full before it’s too late at night for a hike.

We’ll meet at the trailhead at 6:15 p.m. Then at 6:30 we’ll gradually hike about 1.5 miles to a vista point. We’ll encounter some elevation gain on a well-worn, dirt fire road with uneven footing in places. Along the way we’ll stop to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants, possibly including:

Blue Elderberry
California Buckwheat
Black & Purple Sage
Hollyleaf Cherry
Coastal Sagebrush
Prickly-Pear
and the fragrant night-blooming Brickellbush

After witnessing the moonrise and sunset, we’ll walk back to the trailhead by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead by 9:00 p.m.

I will have copies of my new book, Medicinal Herbs of Californiawith me for sale and signing before and after the hike.

Rain or chance of thunderstorms will cancel the hike. No dogs or smoking, please.

The cost of the hike is $35. Please note: the PayPal payment will include their fee. Once you register you will receive instructions to mail a check if you prefer not to use PayPal.
