Due to the coronavirus, many events have been canceled or postponed, and our listings may not reflect those changes. Please check with organizers before making plans.
We're headed to Lake Livingston State Park to check out the full moon! We'll meet up with the group being lead by the state park and enjoy the Thunder Moon shining over the lake as we explore the park at night.
"The full moon in July also is called the Thunder Moon because of the frequency of thunderstorms during this hot, dry month." Nasa, Watch the Skies (https://blogs.nasa.gov/Watch_the_Skies/tag/thunder-moon/)
Level of difficulty:
The walk is flat but you might encounter uneven spots or holes in the areas we're walking.
What to bring:
- Tennis shoes or hiking shoes
- Flash light - if you don't have a red light, please bring some red tissue paper to cover your light. Hopefully, the moon will provide enough light.
- Chair or blanket if you plan to arrive early
- Bug Spray
Arrive by 8:15pm to allow yourself to find the location and park. We’ll start the hike promptly at 8:30pm and we’ll explore the park for about 1 hour.
If you want to arrive early, bring a snack or your dinner to enjoy as you watch the sunset and the bats over the lake.
NOTE: The park closes at 10pm and therefore you must leave by then to avoid getting a ticket. If you’re interested in spending the night, please reserve a camping spot here (https://texasstateparks.reserveamerica.com/)
Meet at the Activity Center near the dumpster.
The hike is free but you’ll need to pay the $5 per person park entrance fee if you don’t have a state park pass. Use the after-hours fee process.
