The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, when the path of the sun in the sky is farthest south in the Northern Hemisphere. After the solstice, the days get longer again, so the day is celebrated in many cultures as a time of rebirth.
During this guided walk, you will:
- Hear solstice stories
- Learn how plants and animals survive the cold winter months
- Identify signs of life along the trails
- Consider our human role as being a part of nature rather than apart from it.
Come dressed for the weather and ready to walk up to two miles on wood-chipped trails.
