Museum Plans Full-Moon Snowshoe Hike

This event has been canceled due to weather

If no snow, at least moon will be there

The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall has plans for a full-moon snowshoe hike — if there is snow — at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 23. Meet at the Outdoor Discovery Center on Muser Drive across from 174 Angola Road. Education Director Jenny Brinker will review the history of snowshoeing and compare types of snowshoes, then venture outside to explore the sights and sounds of winter under the Wolf Moon.

“Snowshoeing is gentle on the environment and lets you see nature in all its amazing wintry glory,” Brinker says. “Everything is quiet and calmly blanketed in snow, and snowshoes allow you to head off-trail into dense woods you wouldn’t otherwise be able to reach.”

The excursion will end with hot cocoa and a treat. Participants must supply their own snowshoes. If there is no snow, the event will be a hike instead. This program is designed for adults and families with children aged 10 and older. The cost is $6 for museum members and $8 for non-members. Pre-paid registration is required; visit or call 845-534-5506, ext. 204.
