We’re excited to announce the fourth edition of FULL MOON OVER WEST LINN! The October full moon is commonly referred to as The Hunter’s Moon. As summer harvests would wrap up for the year native tribes and communities began to rely more heavily on hunting for fall and winter sustenance at a time when game animals would typically have more meat and fat content. Interesting tidbit: prior to the acceptance of the Gregorian Calendar, the Harvest Moon could have been in either September or October – which ever was closest to the fall equinox.

Come on out to Maddax Woods to learn more!
