Full Moon Friday Night Hikes are held from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the Fridays closest to the full moon: September 21, October 26, and November 23. Arrive early in September and October and enjoy a Hayride and campfire from 5:30 to 7 p.m. for an additional fee.

Hikes are designed for ages 5 and up. Register at the Costick Center or at recreg.fhgov.com. You can also pay at the door on the night of the program, but space is limited. In case of inclement weather, the hike will be canceled, with paid fees refunded.

Call the Nature Center at 248-477-1135 or write to asmith@fhgov.com to learn more.
