No Child Left Indoors Stargazing Event - July 5

Please join Lytle Creek League of Conservators/No Child Left Indoors volunteers in our first stargazing event.  Volunteers will help children and their accompanying adults explore the night sky with telescopes and binoculars.  We will meet near the Cowan Lake Campground beach (1756 Osborn Rd. Wilmington) at 9:00 for pizza and an educational program as the sky darkens and the night sky show begins.  This program is suitable for all ages.

If the weather conditions do not permit viewing that evening, we will need to re-schedule the event.  Lets hope for clear skies!

Consider bringing blankets you can lay on the ground and watch the night sky unfold.    As you can expect, we will have "light" limitations, so be prepared to operate in the dark.  This would be a great program to do some preparation with your children with books or internet sources that offer stargazing guidance.

 Additional telescopes would be welcomed, as well as experienced stargazers who can help us out.  If you have any questions, please call Lori Williams @ (937) 725-5756.

Registration is required HERE.
