Oh My Stars – It’s the Perseids Meteor Shower (Thu. 11 Aug, 2016 12:00 am)

If the skies are clear and once the moon has set, hold onto your seat and get prepared for a fabulous show!  Call them what you will – falling stars, shooting stars or meteors, they are all one and the same.  For your comfort, please bring a bag chair, blanket and thermos of hot cocoa, if you’d like. We meet at the State Route 62 2nd parking lot.  The program begins with a hike on the Prairie Trail to reach our viewing destination.  This event is weather and conditions dependent.  If overcast skies, we’ll enjoy a walk on the trails in the wee morning hours!
