Winter Solstice Walk
Thursday, December 21st
River Keepers is coordinating the Winter Solstice Walk to bring some light and cheer to the longest night of the year. The trail at M.B. Johnson Park in Moorhead will be lit at 5:30 p.m. and glow until 8 p.m. This is a special way to experience the beauty of a riverfront park in December. Pre-registration is not required.
There has been unprecedented interest in the Winter Solstice Walk, so please carpool. Spots should turn over about every 45 minutes or so. Make a night of it….go look at some Christmas lights and come back if the lots are full.
Several hundred glowstick necklaces will be handed out at the event.
There are ten interpretive signs along the M.B. Johnson Park Trail which are a part of an Adventure Lab for geocachers. Bring a flashlight to #LearntheRed!
Nexus-PATH Family Healing will be providing free hot chocolate to the public while supplies last at the small shelter. Bring your favorite mug!
* Dress for the weather.
* Wear comfortable walking shoes.
* Walking sticks are good for winter walking but not necessary.
* Welcome to bring festive lighted necklaces and/or hats!
