June Nearly-Full Moon Sunset Herb Walk: June 3, 2020
June 3 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25
George Inness. Winter Moonlight (Christmas Eve), 1866.
On Wednesday evening, June 3, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., I’ll lead a Nearly-Full Moon Sunset Herb Walk to a vista point above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the simultaneous moonrise and sunset. The nearly-full moon will rise at about 6:20 p.m. and the sun will start to set at 7:30 p.m., giving us a nice window of time to take it all in. Attendance will be limited to 10 participants, face coverings will be required, and we will maintain 6 feet of physical distance at all times. 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. Anyone with possible COVID-19 symptoms is asked stay home. A refund will be issued if you notify me of cancellation.
We’ll meet at the Shelf Road trailhead at the top of N. Signal Street between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. Then we’ll gradually walk about 1.25 miles to the vista point, stopping along the way to meet some valuable native plants, including:
Purple Sage and
After witnessing the rising of the moon and setting of the sun, we’ll walk back to the trailhead as close together as possible by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead by 7:30 or 8:00 p.m.
