Explore the Night: Night Hike & Guided Telescope Observing – February 18, 2021

February 18, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM


Explore the Night — CANCELLED

Join Ella Sharp Museum and the Dahlem Center for a wonderful night under the stars!  Let’s explore and use our night senses. The goal for our night walk led my Dahlem Naturalist Educator Carrie Benham is to help people enjoy being outdoors after dark, help them feel safe, and share information about nocturnal animals, the senses they use at night, and how we can better develop our own senses and awareness of the dark. Afterwards, Ella Sharp will be providing guided telescope observing. We will be observing the dark sky to view the planets, watch the stars come out, and many other celestial wonders. Telescope observing is dependent on clear skies. Tickets are nonrefundable. In the event of a rain day, tickets will be applied to a rescheduled date.

Price: $8 for members (either Dahlem or Ella) / $10 for non-members
