Night Sky Tour: Blue Sturgeon Supermoon


Join the park educator and our Astronomy enthusiast/Conservation Volunteer, for an exciting evening exploring the wonders of the heavens. 

Participants will have captivating views of the Blue Sturgeon Supermoon, which will be the second of two supermoons in August. We'll also view planets, and various constellations, through the park's professional-grade telescopes. This program will begin as an informative discussion on the August full supermoons, followed by a hands-on exploration of the wonders and mysteries of the evening skies. Participants are also welcome to bring their own observation equipment. This event is free.

Pre-registration is required to attend this program and spaces are limited. MINORS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.

Programs begin at the Environmental Interpretive Center (E.I.C.). The park asks that visitors to the Night Sky programs please leave their pets at home. Dim lighting, large crowds and sensitive equipment do not create a pet-friendly environment. 

 ***PLEASE NOTE!!! All stargazing programs will be canceled and rescheduled in the event of rain or severe thunderstorms. If the sky is overcast or mostly cloudy, the program will be canceled and rescheduled. If the sky is clear or partly cloudy, the program is a GO! A decision to cancel will be made no later than 3pm the day of the program. PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL OR THE CALENDAR OF EVENTS PAGE FOR A NOTIFICATION OF CANCELLATION!!!
