Astronomers Edith and Tom Auchter will lead an evening of stargazing, discuss where one would find a nebula and answer questions about outer space. Telescopes will be on-hand, but if you have one, please bring it for the evening.

The class is open to children ages 6 and older. Caregivers are required to attend. A portion of the class is outdoors, so dress for the weather. Class size is limited and will fill quickly, so register early.

CFC members are free. Nonmembers pay $5 for the first child and $1 for each additional child. Please make checks payable to Citizens for Conservation.
