Join us on the “midnight of the year” for a modern observance of an ancient tradition. Gather around a fire and explore the history of this event and the modern day symbolism that is with us today. Lit by the light of the full moon, our group hikes will deepen our understanding of the significance of the solstice as we look forward to the rebirth of spring. Complete with traditional music and bites! This hike is entirely outside; dress accordingly.

Member $8; nonmembers $15 (includes daily admission).
