March 4, 2023, 8:00pm, Rogers Island Visitors Center.
Photos from the 2023 tour. It was a beautiful night with mild weather and fresh snow!
Join us for a historic tour of Rogers Island by the light of the February Full Moon!
We’ll gather at the Visitors Center at 7:30pm to prepare and organize before heading out in the moonlight for the approximately 1 mile tour at 8:00pm.
As we tour the Island, our knowledgeable tour guide will tell the of Island’s history and its inhabitants, explain its importance in early American history, and describe the important archaeological excavations conducted by Dr. David Starbuck.
We’ll stop for a “warm-up” at one of the Island’s picnic tables with a view of the moonlit river where members of “Rogers Rangers” will answer questions about life on the island. Snacks and local beverages will be provided as we gather around a campfire. Warmed and refreshed, we’ll finish the tour before heading back to Visitors Center.
*****We will be traveling on unlighted, unmaintained paths, over uneven ground, and through fields. Appropriate winter clothing and footwear are required. Snowshoes/skis are not required but micro-spikes are recommended to prevent slipping, especially if there is only light snow cover. Bring your own flashlight or headlamp. Event is weather dependent.
