Family Programs

Full Moon Friday at Hawk Rise    
Led by Christine Whorton, Teacher Naturalist
Friday, May 20
8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.        
Each month’s full moon gives us the chance to see evening wildlife activity in light almost as bright as day.  We’ll hike without flashlights, and see the world at twilight: songbirds gathering their final meal of the day, early migrating waterfowl settling in for the night, maybe one of our resident red foxes.  It’s nature: always an adventure! This program is appropriate for children and families of all ages.
Cost: FREE

Celebrate Moths at Hawk Rise Sanctuary
Led by Christine Whorton, Teacher Naturalist – Urban Education
Friday, July 29
8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Help us investigate the moths of Hawk Rise Sanctuary! Find out more about the secret lives of moths and why they are important to humans. We will learn how to attract moths and take a night hike to explore their habitats and predators. How many different species of moths do you think we will find? Who do you think eats moths at night? Find out by using real investigative methods and tools.
This program is scheduled to run until 9:30 pm BUT if the Lepidopteran (moth) fun is going strong, we may keep the party going a bit longer! Pre-registration strongly requested. Please call 908.766.5787 to register.
Location: Hawk Rise Sanctuary, Range Road, Linden, NJ
Cost: Free.
