Lunar Ski

Even with very little snow, this year's lunar ski was a success! Most took advantage of the park's late hours to enjoy a lunar walk, while a few strapped on skis and snowshoes to explore the trails. After their outdoor adventures people came inside to feast upon chili made and served by the Friends of Tinker Nature Park.

After warming up with chili it was time for an owl walk. Armed with owl calls and flashlights, Friends member Bob Hodge and I led the excited group around the nature trail. We played calls from the screech owl, great horned owl, and even barred owl, but didn't hear or see any responses. Maybe next time!

A big thank you to the Friends of Tinker Nature park for all of your help with this event! We wouldn't be able to do it without you!
