Participants will borrow snowshoes to take a self-guided hike around a candle lit trail and will be able to view the stars with members of the Durham Region Astronomical Association. Michael D’Angelo, President of DRAA says “if the conditions are right you can enjoy the splendors of the winter sky. View the Moon, galactic nebulae, and distant galaxies beyond our Milkyway.” Please Note: In the case of cloudy weather the event will be move to Saturday, February 9th.
Participants will come back to the education center to enjoy a hot drink and light refreshments. Participants are asked to lug -a –mug.
This event is FREE however registration is required as the number of snowshoes is limited. Participants are asked to register their family members to ensure snowshoe availability. This self-guided event runs 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.
In the case of poor snow conditions you can explore the trails without snowshoes, so this is a snow or no snow event. Flashlights are discouraged as it is disturbing to wildlife and not necessary as your eyes will adjust to the conditions and the candlelit trails. Participants can bring their own snowshoes and or walking poles but please leave pets at home.
