Sunset Walk for the Vernal Equinox

Literally meaning, "equal night", an equinox occurs each year when winter becomes spring or summer becomes fall. On each of these occasions the length of the day equals the length of the night. The spring, or vernal, equinox has long been celebrated for symbolizing the return of sunlight, warmth, and life after winter's long nights. 

Join us for a guided tour of the preserve's trails as the sun sets on the last day of winter. Tag along with us to learn about historical celebrations of the vernal equinox and what we'll be looking forward to around the preserve as we move into spring. Don't miss this rare chance to appreciate the preserve at dusk. 

Participation will be $5/person (HCWPF members can take $2 off). Advanced registration is required for this event and can be done Here. This is an after hours event so gates will reopen beforehand at 6:30 p.m. and check-in will occur at our headquarters ahead of the walk.
