Astronomy and Owl Prowl
April 17, 2009 @ 12:00 am EDT
Rain/Cloud date is Sunday, April 19th.
Join staff from the Travelers Science Dome at the Gengras Planetarium for a look at the spring sky. Following a brief discussion and astronomy project in the Nature Center auditorium, Nature Center staff will conduct a walk through the woods to open fields where we'll use telescopes to observe the heavens. As an added bonus, we'll look and listen for owls along the way, as well as discuss the nesting habits of the Barred Owls that often breed in our woods.
Pre-registration is required for this program as space is limited. It is not for very young children. Dress for cooler spring evening temperatures and possibly wet conditions underfoot.
$8/person for Nature Center/ TCM Members, $10/ person for non-members.
