Bass Creek Will Host July Moon Walk
The second 2012 Bitterroot National Forest Moon Walk will be July 7.
The "Bird Moon" will be presented by the Bitterroot Audubon Chapter and will start about 7pm at the Bass Creek Picnic Area.
The Audubon members will have live owls and hawks at the evening presentation. The club will also have information on how to use binoculars to look for tiny birds and how to identify field marks.
There will also be a bit about biomimicry, how birds and other animials have been an inspiration for new technologies.
The free Moon Walks are in their 12th year on the Bitterroot National Forest, which partners with other valley organizations to provide free, fun seminars out in the woods every month, on the week of the full moon.
Guests are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, flashlight and jacket. The walks are based on the book "Walk When the Moon is Full" and they last about one to two hours.
The next Moon Walk will be in Hamilton at Hieronymus Park -- Bat Moon!
