STINAPA invites the Bonairean community to come and join them for a walk and have some healthy fun under the full blue moon. This year, there are two months (January and March) that harbor a Blue Moon. The second blue moon is on March 31. A Blue Moon occurs whenever there is a second full moon in one calendar month, hence the saying, “once in a blue moon.”
Bring your family and friends and make it a fabulous night. The route will be the Lagadishi trail along the coast and back. The Lagadishi walking trail brings you on a limestone plateau that provides you with a complete spectrum of Bonairean windward scenery: historic sites, xerophytic vegetation (plants such as cactus, which is adapted to dry habitat), sand dunes, mangroves, a salt pan (a shallow seawater lake, which evaporates seasonally leaving a residue of salt), blowholes, and a true oceanic beach are some of the components of this trail. Flamingos are frequently seen in the salt pan. Interpretation signs are provided on this trail.
Don’t forget to put on some walking shoes that are comfortable. Bring a flashlight along, because even if it is full moon you do want to see what’s on the ground right in front of you, as you don’t want to hit your toes against rocks or even cacti. Don’t forget to bring your own bottle of water and snacks if necessary.
To register your participation, please call 717-8444. There is space for 25 people. The group will meet at the entrance of Washington Slagbaai National Park!
Can’t make it? Not to worry–in 2037, there will be another chance with Blue Moons in January and March
