Nature at Night

Coming to a Night Sky Program, but arriving early? Join park staff for a family friendly Nature at Night Program!

These programs feature fascinating creatures that enjoy the night as much as we do at Cherry Springs. Possible topics include: fireflies, owls bats, black bears and more! 

If you arrive early you can bring a picnic! Picnic tables and charcoal grills are on site next to the Night Sky Public Viewing Area.

Registration is NOT required for the Nature at Night programs.


If you have questions or would like to know when a specific topic or animal will be featured during a Nature at Night program, email cherryspringsee@pa.gov  or call the park office at 814-435-1037. 

Park programs occur on the Night Sky Public Viewing Area. Park in the gravel lot and follow the walkway next to the restrooms to the seating area. Since seating is limited, you may want to bring a chair and/or blanket. 

We ask that park visitors please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment.

All programs will be cancelled in the event of rain or thunder.
