Enjoy a special viewing of the Blue Moon during a two-hour stroll through evening and into the early night with your family. The sun will start to set as the bike starts, but the full moon should provide all the light needed to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a spring evening at the Nature Reserve. Participants will play a series of sensory-based games that test the senses.
For families with kids age 6-12. Cost is $9 per person; $7 for members of the Missouri Botanical Garden.
7 to 9 p.m. at Shaw Nature Reserve.
