Stars, Strolls & S’mores Event Continues Wednesday

NORFOLK – The third and final series of nature walks during a full moon will take place in the month of August which will be highlighted by a small snack.

According to a release from the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District (LENRD), the Nebraska Game & Parks along with the Norfolk Area Visitors Bureau want to help you discover your area trails, lakes and wild places while highlighting the unique opportunities nighttime offers with a free Moon Walk event, “Stars, Strolls & S’mores.”

The purpose of the moon walk is to provide a family-oriented activity that introduces people to the wonders that can be found in their neck of the woods.

The Moon Walks will be held on Wednesday evenings close to the full moon and begin at 7:30 p.m. as most Moon Walks will last for 1-2 hours. Participants will walk an average of one-mile round trip.

Each Moon Walk starts with a short introduction of that evening’s program, followed by a hike to a designated area where they enjoy presentations. Presenters are experts in their field and are from the local community as the evening will wrap up with free s’mores.

The final “moon walk” evening will be Wednesday, August 25 at Red Road Herbs Retreat & Learning Center on 835 Road near Stanton. Presentations will include beginner Dutch Oven cooking and Worthy Weeds.

Everyone is encouraged to bring your friends and neighbors for this free event near northeast Nebraska communities.
