Description

the YNC joins the BNS in welcoming the return of the sun! Harold Forsyth from the BNS will lead our walk behind Noggins farm as he points out the various trees, tracks & other sights.

We invite everyone to welcome the winter season and continue the 5000-year tradition of celebrating the return of the Sun after the longest night of the year. We will meet around a roaring bonfire at Noggins Corner Farm and set off for a hike through the centuries-old pine and hemlock forest. We will pass an 18th century Acadian cellar, Poor House graveyard and a huge bald eagle nest. We will look for tracks and signs of wildlife, call for owls in the deep woods, and view the stars from the dykes (weather permitting). We will make our way back to the bonfire for hot apple cider and share a toast to a winter season full of light and good cheer to all.

We will meet in the parking lot left of the Noggins Corner Farm Market. Please join us for a very old annual tradition!
