It is going to be dark and the stars will be out! Do you know how to find the Big Dipper, Cassiopeia, or other constellations? Do you know where to look for the North Star? If not, then you need a planisphere or star map! Come join us and make your own star map to take home so that you can enjoy the night sky wherever you are.

A planisphere is a simple hand-held map which shows the stars visible in the night sky at any particular time.  By rotating the wheel, it shows how stars move across the sky at night, and what constellations are visible throughout the year.

All materials are provided.

This program is FREE with entry to the park.  Regular park entrance fees are $3.00 per adult, free for children 12 and under.
