Kids 6 years and older are invited to join astronomers Edith and Tom Auchter for an evening of stargazing at Citizens for Conservation-owned Flint Creek Savanna, CFC headquarters, on Saturday, April 5 from 7:30-9:30 pm.
Where does one find a nebula? Will there be a quarter moon? Do stars or planets twinkle? Does the planet Saturn have rings or moons, or both? Telescopes will be on hand, but if you have one, please bring it for the evening.
This class is open to children 6 years and older and caregivers are required to attend. Part of the class is outdoors so be sure to dress for the weather.
Tonight’s event is free for CFC members. The cost for non-members is $5 for the first child and $1.00 for each additional child. Make checks payable to Citizens for Conservation and call CFC at 847-382-SAVE with any questions.
