Stars and Planets

Join park staff as we team up with the Swansboro Public Library for an evening program full of night time exploration!  There will be multiple telescopes available to get a closer look at the evening skies as we search for planets, constellations, and the moon.  Fun for all nighttime enthusiasts!

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