What stories do the stars tell? Are they different from one continent to the next?

*Weather Permitting

Come down to our Star Theater for a (hopefully) unobstructed view of the heavens with the naked eye! We'll tell stories and legends behind our favorite seasonal constellations, and find out why certain stars/planets had such significance to humanity as we started out! Different constellations are visible throughout the year, so each season we will see something new!

- Meet at the Equestrian area trailhead and follow the red lights on a 200 ft walk to the star theater behind the large barn! The trail is mostly dirt and grass. It may be muddy if it has rained recently.
- Lasts about 1 Hour and ends in open stargazing.
- Bring your own blankets/chairs to watch the skies! Stone seats are available for use as well.
- Normal entrance fees required to enter park. No additional fees or registration required to attend this event.
- Buy your permits at home! Go to our Website to purchase (with credit card) and print your permits ahead of time! Exact change required if arriving after 6pm.
- Please check weather and this page before leaving for the event, weather can sneak up at the last minute. Final go/no go decision will be by 2pm the day before the event.
- Bring flashlights but please don't use them once the program and stargazing has begun. Red lights are permitted for limited use. The longer you let your eyes adjust the more stars you will see!
- Child and dog friendly. Dogs must remain on a leash at all times. Please no noisy or aggressive dogs.
