Night Sky with the Naked Eye

Join a ranger after dark to explore the night skies with only using your eyes!  You will get a chance to learn about some of the planets and constellations that will be lighting up our night sky.
NOTE: We will not be using our telescopes, however you are welcome to bring your own telescope to use.

PROGRAM IS WEATHER DEPENDENT. Contact park office for program update: 910-326-4881.

Due to the Governor's new Executive Order social distancing is encouraged and face masks must be worn whenever social distancing of 6 feet cannot be maintained.
