Sunset Sit & Moonrise Smile

Photo of sunset with moon rising.Once a month make time in your day to relax and take in the eastern sky as the sun sets and the moon rises. This evening vivid colors paint the sky, the earth’s shadow rises, heralding the coming of night, and a full moon makes its dramatic entrance into the night sky. Daytime wildlife seeks shelter as nighttime creatures emerge.

Join us thirty minutes before sunset at select City of Hillsboro park sites. A Parks & Recreation naturalist will be on hand to help you tune in to the many wonderful events that attend day passing into night. Dress comfortably for the weather. Bring a portable chair and something warm to drink if you like. Free. No pre-registration required.
