In the dark days of winter, there is much to be seen and heard! Join us for an evening under the starry skies at our remote Black Earth Campus. We’ll spend the evening hiking under the night sky to listen for owl calls during their peak winter courtship and viewing the Orion and Crab nebulas, Jupiter, and several other constellations through a telescope on the deck (weather permitting). In between sky viewing and night hiking, warm-up by the fire in the cabin as well as participate in some indoor activities relating to owls and the night sky. ALNC will have adult and child snowshoes available on a first come first serve basis for use during night hikes. Pre-registration preferred.
