Star Gazing and don't forget the Moon

7:00p to 9:00p

Rita Eisenschenk
(254) 694-3793

Enjoy an evening in the park as you explore the galaxy by star maps and telescope. Retired National Park range Larry Smith will guide you through the planets, moon and stars with fascinating facts. Plan about 2 hours for this program that will start at 7 pm. To ensure the telescopes are not at risk of being toppled over, we ask that children remain seated. Please register your group by calling the park office during business hours at (254) 694-3793 or send an email with your name, phone number and total adults and children attending to rita.eisenschenk@tpwd.tx.gov

Bring your own camp chairs if you would like or you may use the metal picnic tables spaced out in the area. Binoculars if you have them and a flash light with a red beam works best to keep the area dark.

This event will be held across from the Group Rec Hall. Follow the signs for parking and solar lights to the picnic tables. 

Park entry permits are required on all vehicles. You may purchase online and print to display, purchase at the park office before closing at 4:30 pm or use a self pay envelope located across from the office using the correct cash amount.

The event will be cancelled if temps are below 55 or raining. We will call everyone that has signed up when we have to cancel an event.
