Afternoon Hike and a Starry Saturday Night
December 19, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
A early winter hike and star gazing with clear skies is a good Saturday outdoors.
Afternoon Nature Hike begins at 1:00 p.m. Meet Naturalist Lauren Cole at the Museum for a paced hike on the Cliffside Trail. This is an easy guided nature hike that is one mile in length and suitable for beginners. Identification of trees, birds, flowers, insects and other neat finds will occur. Some parts of the trail may have rocks, roots, or be close to sheer drops.
If you’ve hiked Cliffside before, remember as the seasons change, so do discoveries along the trail. There is no fee to participate. Masks are necessary and distancing will be observed.
Starry Saturday Night invites visitors to meet at 7:00 p.m. at Chief Logan Lodge fire pit to look through and learn about how to use a computerized telescope. Various celestial bodies that may be observed are the moon, planets, galaxies and more. Learn seasonal constellations and other cool facts about the night sky. Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be visible if the sky is clear. In case of rain, this activity is canceled.
