About: The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, we most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon. Full Moon Hike at Cass Scenic Railroad State Park will occur on or about the occurrence of full moon. Hikes will be led by Park Ranger or Naturalist. Registration is not required, but requested. Please register for Full Moon Hikes by calling 304.456.4300. All hikes will start at the Visitor Center and are just over 3 miles in duration on a slight grade. Meet at the Visitors Center at 8:30 p.m.
