Please be sure to use the REGISTER link below or at the bottom of the page before clicking on the PayPal button to complete payment and secure your space. Note: Online payment includes a PayPal fee. To avoid that, when you register you can request instructions for mailing a payment of $35/person.


On Monday evening, September 20, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., I’ll lead a Full Moon Sunset Nature Hike above the Ojai Valley where we can watch the sunset followed by the rising of the full moon. 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:

California Buckwheat
Black Walnut
Black & Purple Sage
Coastal Sagebrush

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 8:30 p.m.

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 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 5:30 p.m. on Friday, September 17. 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.
