Welcome the Winter Solstice

December 21, 2019
Snowy woods with sun filtering through on winter solstice

Celebrate the winter solstice at the BNC on Saturday, December 21, from 6:30-8:00 pm! This annual astronomical event marks the first day of winter and the longest night of the year.

We'll take a moonlit stroll through the meadow (maybe on snowshoes!) to look for animal tracks and listen for owls.

After our exploration of the sanctuary, you'll head back inside to warm up with hot apple cider and create some solstice art.
