Full Moon Over Mackinac

August 21 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Experience Mackinac Island by moonlight on this free guided hike with Park Naturalist, Kyle Bagnall. Participants will meet behind Fort Mackinac at the Avenue of Flags on Huron Road, and we’ll hike towards the highest point of the Island at Fort Holmes. Along the way, we’ll be on the lookout for wildlife emerging at dusk, including snowshoe hare, owls, and bats flying overhead. We’ll arrive at Fort Holmes in time to watch the full Sturgeon Moon rise over the Straits of Mackinac, illuminating the water below. Bring a flashlight, wear clothes for the weather, and good shoes for walking about 1 mile total (including stairs). This hike is free, with no preregistration required.
