Kuehn Conservation Area, Earlham

During the long nights of winter Native People would gather and tell their stories. Inside a warm tipi with just the light of a campfire they would tell of fantastic journeys, cautionary tales and learn how things came to be. This date was chosen because of the full moon. Sun will be setting at 6:54 and moonrise is 7:02. Bring a blanket to sit or for extra warmth. Registration absolutely required as space is limited.
