Full Moon Snowshoe

Saturday January 27th at 4:30pm
Randall Orchards, Standish

Join us for our annual full moon snowshoe at Randall Orchard – the farm we helped protect as farmland forever. We will meet at the farm at sunset and head out to explore the nearly 500-acres of conserved orchard and forest while snowshoeing in the moonlight. After the walk, we will be serving hot cider from apples grown and pressed on-site at the orchard. The snowshoe will be about one mile and the program will last two hours. The event is free and an RSVP is required. Click Here to RSVP.
