Gaze up in the dark of the new moon and hear the stories of the stars…

Join Ranger Jared in the pocket pasture to see how brilliant the stars can be under the new moon!

  • After a short walk to the open skied pocket pasture, set up a chair, bundle up, and hear what stories the stars can tell us.
  • Spot some of the more prominent constellations that are out this time of year and hear what legends they tell us with their distant light.
  • As we walk and talk on our way to the viewing location, those who want their own light should bring a red lens/light if possible, to allow for night vision adjustment. There will be a limited number of loaner lights available from the park, first come first serve.

Participants may want to bring water, appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoors, a folding chair or blanket, a flashlight (with a red lens if possible), and their best night vision!

Meet at the Mission.
