Afternoon Hike and a Starry Saturday Night
November 21, 2020 @ 1:01 am
A late autumn hike and star gazing with amazing 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 asks visitors to meet at 7:00 p.m. at Chief Logan Lodge fire pit to look through a computerized telescope at various celestial bodies including the moon, planets, galaxies and more. Learn seasonal constellations and other cool facts about the night sky – Mars, Jupiter, Saturn should be visible unless the sky is cloudy/overcast. In case of rain, this activity is canceled.
