Friends members and other Shell Mound enthusiasts will gather again this year on the Shell Mound To walk the interpretive trail and to share the sunset at Winter Solstice. the guided walk will start at 4:30 from the parking lot at the pier. Sunset is at 5:39 P.M. It has been blustery and foggy the past couple of years. Here's hoping for a lovely evening this year. But even blustery is mystical as we watch the sun over the end of the parabolic dune where much earlier people buried their dead and celebrated the Solstice.
The Refuge is open daily from dawn to dusk.
