Blue Moon, Two Times
park programs at Observatory Park and by canoe at Headwaters Park
It comes once in a blue moon – the blue moon! For the first time ever, explore this year’s blue moon on Friday, August 31, between 7:30 and 9 p.m. by canoe on the peaceful East Branch Reservoir or at Observatory Park with the help of a trained naturalist.
The Full Moon Program
Blue Moon at 10610 Clay Street in Montville Township, unravel the mysteries of this special full moon with Observatory Park naturalist Wayne Kriynovich by naked eye and by telescope.
Registration is not required for this all-ages, wheelchair/stroller accessible program. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.
The Blue Moon Canoe
At 13365 Old State Road (Rt. 608) in Huntsburg/Claridon Townships, observe the blue moon as its rises over East Branch Reservoir at Headwaters Park, ever watchful for beaver, barred owl, and other wildlife as the lake awakens at day’s end.
