If you're looking for a little peace post-holiday madness, and could use a little exercise after the yuletide binge, join the guided Moonlight Snowshoe event, held at Helmer Nature Center (154 Pinegrove Ave., Irondequoit) on Friday, December 28, 7-9 p.m. The moon will be full and will light up the crystalline woods — provided that we have a winter wonderland at that point.
This event is just for adults, and the cost to partake of the trek is $5 for members and $7 for the general public. The price includes snowshoe rental, basic instruction, and refreshments. If the weather doesn't cooperate on the 28th, be sure to check out one of the walks on the nights of the full moon in January and February. For more information, call 336-3035 or visit westirondequoit.org/helmer.htm.
Lecture: The Archaeological Institute of America will hold a lecture titled "Agatha Christie, Archaeology, and Alzheimer's" tonight, 7:30 p.m., at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.).
