Join Nature Center for 'Blue Moon' and 'Alien Invaders'
April 08, 2010
The John T. Huston - Dr. John D. Brumbaugh Nature Center will be holding a 'Blue Moon Night Hike' on Saturday, July 31 from 9 ' 11 p.m. and 'Alien Invaders' on Sunday, August 1 from 2 ' 4 p.m.
If a month has a second full moon, it is called a blue moon. We'll walk the Nature Center trails to see what we can see by moonlight. Come join us for this 'once in a blue moon' walk. The next blue moon is not until May 31, 2007. We ask that you dress for the weather and that you not use a flashlight on the hike. Registration is required for this event.
On Sunday, join us to find out what scientists are doing and what you can do to meet the threats of 'alien' plants that displace our native plants and animals. A large part of our land is being taken over by these plants and animals from other places. When these 'aliens' move in, they frequently come without the predators and diseases that kept them under control in their homeland. So they run rampant here. No registration is required for this event.
The Nature Center is located 6 miles south of Mount Union College on Daniel Street, just off Route 183. For more information, contact the Nature Center at (330) 823-7487.
