Viewing the night sky from an expansive meadow far from city lights is a truly special experience. Grab your telescopes, camp chairs, and blankets and join a ranger and educators from PEEC in mutual appreciation of the night sky! Learn about celestial objects while gazing through high powered telescopes. Practice your night photography, and listen to the night sounds of the Valle Grande. Junior Rangers can earn their Night Explorers patch! Temperatures will drop once the sun goes down, so bundle up in layers! Bring water and snacks, and please assure flashlights or headlamps have a red lens or red covering to safeguard night vision. As parking is limited, please carpool if possible. Last entry will be 10:30pm with the preserve gates closing at 11:00pm. In the case of poor weather, the event may end early or be canceled.
