Full “Pink Moon” Hike With Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt
Join Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt (FLPG) and SOFO on a leisurely-paced hike through open-field trails. The “Pink Moon” name comes from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month’s celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
