Before GPS and Google Maps, humans used the night sky to find their way at sea, on land, and in the skies. Bring your favorite lawn chair or blanket and join storyteller and teacher Jon Hawkins as he navigates celestial stories and explores different cultures’ use of stars and constellations as navigational guides.

Following Mr. Hawkins’ presentation, enjoy a celestial craft, unobstructed views of the night sky, and s’mores around the campfire. Binoculars and telescopes for catching close-ups views of planets, stars, and even meteors (as part of the Perseids meteor shower) will be provided.

This outdoor event will be in-person and is appropriate for learners of all ages. In case of bad weather, the scheduled make-up date is Monday, August 16.

Pre-registration is required
