Join us and special guest Tom Ray for a celebration of the Perseids meteor shower! Come for the evening or stay overnight to learn about constellations, planets, the Milky Way, and more!  Weather-permitting, a brief indoor presentations will be followed by a guided tour of the night sky using telescope and laser pointer.  And how many meteors will you count?  If we're lucky and the sky is clear, our stargazing will treat us to a dynamic display!

Meet at 7:30 pm in the Pavilion for this free event, or book your family/group into a cabin (special rate $65/cabin) and stay overnight. Drop-ins are welcome, but overnight guests must book accommodation in advance.  This event will run rain or "shine"... let's hope for the latter! Bring your binoculars.

FREE ($65 if staying overnight)
