Looking for some outdoor fun Hirundo Wildlife Refuge has just the ticket. Rent a canoe or bring your own for this paddle by the light of May's blue moon.

According to the post the full moon on Saturday is also called a full flower or corn planting moon be native Americans. They add too that the moon will look exceptionally bright due the the position of the sun this time of year. The paddle is down Pushaw Stream which runs through the Hirundo Wildlife Refuge. The other nice benefit of paddles this time of year is that insects should not be an issue.

As most folks know this is the third of four full moons in this season, which is why it is referred to as a blue moon. The organizers tell us that these only happen once every few years, giving rise to the term, “once in a blue moon.”
The event will begin on Saturday at 7:30 and run until 9:30 PM. Cost to participate is $5 - $15 and tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
