***Please be advised, due to technical issues with the registration system for this event, we are not requiring registration at this time. PLEASE NOTE- The ONLY date for this program is September 23rd!

Join the park educator and our Astronomy enthusiast/Conservation Volunteer for an exciting evening exploring the wonders of the heavens. This program will feature a dark sky night. The moon will not be visible, which will allow us to see much fainter stars and constellations, as well as the Andromeda Galaxy and Saturn. This program will begin as an informative discussion followed by a hands-on exploration of the wonders and mysteries of the evening skies. Feel free to bring your own equipment. This event is free.
MINORS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
While you may bring your own equipment and observe on your own in the designated area, all visitors should arrive before dark and check in at the Environmental Interpretive Center (E.I.C.). Programs begin at the 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.
