    On Wednesday evening, August 14, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., Ojai native plant educator Lanny Kaufer will continue what has become a fun and popular new monthly activity. He’ll lead an Herb Walk up to a vista point above the Ojai Valley where participants can watch the simultaneous sunset and moonrise. Following the walk is an optional visit to Ojai Valley Brewery at Azu Restaurant to sample native plant infused beers.

    The actual full  moon occurs at 5:29 a.m. on Thursday, August 15, making Wednesday the closest night to it and an earlier, more convenient, time in the evening to witness it. The moon will rise at 7:39 p.m. and the sun will set at 7:45 p.m.

    Register now at by calling 805-646-6281. There is no pre-payment required for this walk, just a promise to let Kaufer know if your plans change. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with all necessary info a few days prior. No dogs or smoking, please.
