Join The Trustees of Reservations to celebrate September's Full Moon. Like most full moons, it goes by many names. Often called the Full Corn Moon, it traditionally corresponds with the time for harvesting corn. Similarly, it is also called the Barley Moon because this is the time when ripened barley is harvested and threshed.
This year, it also wears the moniker Harvest Moon because it is the full moon that falls closest to the Autumnal Equinox (September 22nd); in some years, the October full moon gets that honor. The Harvest Moon gets its name by providing light at the time when it’s most needed—to complete the harvest! While we won't be doing any harvesting, we will take advantage of the Harvest Moon to enjoy a stroll through the dunes of Castle Neck.
Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2 ½-3 miles. Dress for the weather to maximize comfort and minimize misery! Water is always good to have along. You are welcome to bring a flashlight or headlamp; we may ask for moments of total darkness to fully enjoy the moon and the shadows it makes on the dunes.
