Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 06:00pm - 08:30pm
Contact Lanny Kaufer 805-646-6281 Herbwalks.com

On Tuesday evening, May 25, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., Ojai author and naturalist Lanny Kaufer will lead a May Supermoon Sunset Nature Hike above the Ojai Valley to watch the simultaneous moonrise and sunset. The group will gradually hike about 1.25 miles to a vista point with some elevation gain on a well-worn, dirt fire road with some uneven footing in places. They'll stop along the way to meet some valuable edible and medicinal plants, possibly including:

Blue Elderberry
Horehound
Black & Purple Sage
Coastal Sagebrush
Prickly-Pear

After witnessing the moonrise and sunset, the group will walk back to the trailhead by remaining daylight, moonlight, and flashlight, returning to the trailhead at about 8:30 p.m.

To prevent possible transmission of the COVID-19 virus, attendance will be limited to 12 participants. Temperatures will be checked on arrival, face coverings will be required, and participants will maintain 6 feet of physical distance at all times. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or a positive diagnosis is asked to stay home and a refund will be issued.

Rain or chance of thunderstorms will cancel the hike. No dogs or smoking, please.

The cost of admission is $35/person. Register at https://herbwalks.com/event/may-2021-supermoon-sunset-nature-hike/
