HARKERS ISLAND, N.C. — Officials at Cape Lookout National Seashore have announced the summer schedule when visitors can view the moon from the top of the Cape Lookout Lighthouse.

The climbs are scheduled for dates near the full moon. Visitors are asked to bring flashlights. Reservations for evening programs will be accepted the week prior to each month’s dates. The cost is $23.

The summer schedule is:

July 1, 2, 30 and 31.

August 1, 27, 28 and 29.

September 24, 25 and 26.

October 23 and 24.

Many campgrounds in national parks and other government-run sites sell out well before summer. But thousands of campgrounds are privately owned and operated.

One place to look when seeking a campground is GoCampingAmerica.com, with more than 3,000 listings. You can even search for campgrounds that are pet-friendly, big rig-friendly, kid-friendly or adults only.

Many private facilities also offer a strong suite of amenities.

An elevated outdoor museum experience is opening July 4 in New York’s Adirondack regions. Wild Walk is a path across the treetops of a living forest at The Wild Museum in Tupper Lake, in Adirondack Park.

The 1,250 feet of elevated trails and exhibits, about a quarter-mile in length, includes 35 experiences, from talks by naturalists to games, a look inside a dead tree, and an enclosed tunnel with openings to see birds and other creatures using feeders and splash pools outside.

A video preview of the experience can be seen at http://wildcenter.org/wildwalk/.
