April Full Pink Moon Hike: 7:30-10 p.m. Thursday, April 6
Enjoy a self-guided evening hike at the Arboretum while basking in the glow of the Full Pink Moon. April’s full moon is named for the pink moss phlox that begins to bloom in April in other parts of the county – though moss phlox typically blooms in May in Minnesota.
In honor of the pink moon, a 0.75 mile hiking path around Green Heron Pond will be lit with pink uplights, illuminating the surrounding landscape. The hike will start at the Sensory Garden parking lot near the Ordway Picnic Shelter, where multiple bonfires will be staged to help warm chilly fingers and toes.
Arboretum Horticulturist, Annie Gunness, will be stationed near the bonfires from 7:30-9 pm to answer any questions you may have about your favorite early springtime blooms that are currently flowering in the Arboretum.
No refunds after Mar. 23, 2023 for the April Full Pink Moon Hike.
