About the event

Join darkness aficionado, and dark-sky advocate, Patti Johnson for an after-dark walk in the Arcata Community Forest.

Meet at the Arcata Playhouse at 6:30 to convoy up the hill. The half-mile walk will commence  at 7pm along an easy-to-moderate forested trail and will last  approximately 1 hour. As we will be walking in the dark - sturdy walking  shoes are a good choice. Flashlights are optional. Rain will cancel the  event. Please RSVP by emailing info@arcataplayhouse.org or calling 707-822-1575 – as space is limited to 15 participants.

Join  us as we joyfully celebrate the merits of a natural-dark-earth-night.  Darkness isn’t invited into our modern lives, as such, we are out of  practice with experiencing it and seizing the rewards. A group walk is a  wonderful (safe) way to remind our bodies about darkness. Togetherness  helps replace fear with curiosity. Under the cover of darkness,  night-in-a-forest enlivens senses, provides a glimpse into the working  hours of the nocturnal wild lives we share Earth with, and nurtures our  overall sense of awe and wonder.
