LCW Snow Moon Walk

February 5, 2023 Springbrook Nature Center

Mark your calendars and come join us for another full moon walk on Sunday, February 5th at Springbrook Nature Center. The event is sanctioned for a 3km and for those interested, we will be doing it forward and backwards for a total of 6km. Registration will start at 5:45 in the picnic shelter and the walk will start promptly at 6:00 PM.

If we don’t receive a significant amount of snow before then, you won’t need your snowshoes, though they are nice for traversing the foot “pot” holes, as the trails are packed down, though walking sticks might be a plus in case of slippery conditions. (I walked the trails Monday January 23rd and the trails were all hard packed snow and no ice).

Like many of the full moons throughout the year, the snow moon is named for what’s currently happening, February is snowy! According to the Old Farmers Almanac, in the 1760s, Captain Jonathan Carver, who visited the Naudowessie [Dakota], wrote that the name used for this period was the snow moon, “because more snow commonly falls during this month than any other in the winter”
