Star Party – Galveston Island

January 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CST

Astronomy basics and identification hike and stories.

Do you know your stars?….Well, we can teach you a few or show you some cool ways to learn them all on this enjoyable, family-friendly First Day Night Hike!

We will start at the Day Use Beach Parking Lot to hand out materials, test your stellar knowledge, and use the restroom before we head into a sandy dark spot in the park.

Create your own star wheel and play night sky games at 5PM to get prepared for the hike.

You can also just join Ranger Lisa at 5:30PM to take on a cool evening night hike and learn about the importance of the dark and our connection to the stars overhead. Dress warm and be prepared to be outside.

Reconnect with the night and join us for a great evening adventure into the unknown…

What to bring:

Park permit
Flashlight (red flashlights preferred)
Layers of clothing
Blanket (optional)
