Full Moon Walk- June 21st, July 21st, August 19th, September 17th, and October 17th

Overview
Join a park ranger for an evening stroll across the expanse of Silver Sands Beach. Each walk has a different topic as a 5-part series. The walk will begin after sunset, and we will watch as the moon rises and casts its reflection over the Great Salt Lake. The event tour is $3 per person + the $5 (per vehicle) to enter the park. Dogs are welcome but must be on leash. 

Check-in at the Entrance Station with your event tickets. Meet at the Observation Deck just past the Visitor’s Center. The walk will mostly consist of approximately 1/2 mile along relatively flat terrain with typical beach hazards (uneven, unstable sand, changing conditions, etc). Strollers have difficulty in the sand
