Full Moon Paddle

June 15 @ 7:45 pm - 9:45 pm

Experience the sound and shadows of the evening, and watch the beams of the full moon (Strawberry Moon) dance on Pushaw Stream. June’s full moon is named after the wild strawberries that start to ripen during this month. According to some sources, a European name for this early summer month was Rose Moon, and another was Hot Moon, for the beginning of the summer heat. Other sources quote Mead Moon as the Anglo-Saxon name because this was the time for mowing the meads, or meadows.

Hirundo provides the canoes, paddles and life jackets. We use our large 28′ canoes as well as small canoes. All ages are welcome. 

Pricing for the Full Moon Paddle is tiered. Purchase a basic ticket to cover the cost of the program; update to additional amounts and support Hirundo Wildlife Refuge: $8/$12/$15 for adults, $5 for children.
