Stargazing 101 – Galveson Island

January 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CST

The stars at night, are big and bright….Deep in the heart of Texas!

Do you know your stars? Well, we can teach you a few or show you some cool ways to learn them all!

We will start at the Day Use Beach parking to hand out materials and use the restroom before we head into the night. We will hand out equipment and test your stellar knowledge at 5pm, then work out way towards the sand as the sun sets and the evening stars glow.

Join Ranger Lisa on a cool evening night hike and learn about the importance of the dark and our connection to the stars overhead. Dress 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 or beach towel for the chill
Smart phone (for an optional star app download)
