Claverack Library and Mud Creek Environmental Learning Center in Ghent host a full moon snowshoe hike on January 26, from 6:30pm to 8pm. Glide over the snowy night trails with ease in snowshoes that keep your feet from sinking into deep snow. Before the 40-minute hike through 1.5 miles of small rolling hills, boardwalks, and bridges, participants will explore the nature center and talk about nocturnal animals to look and listen for during the hike, like Barred owls and the resident bobcat and otters. Participants will navigate the trails without the use of flashlights, learning about night vision along the way with activities on our inability to differentiate colors in the dark and why pirates wear a patch to help them see better at night. A limited number of snowshoes will be available for registered participants. To reserve shoes, call (518) 828-4386 x3 or e-mail chelsea.benson@ccswcd.org.
