At The State Parks This Weekend

Cherry Springs State Park

June 12, 2009

8:30 pm Owl Prowl
Owls are fascinating creatures. Join the park naturalist for a talk about owls and their unique adaptations that make them such great hunters in the dark. Learn about the many different species that call Pennsylvania home, including Screech Owls, which we will call during a brief walk along the edge of the park. Meet the naturalist at the pavilion.

10:00 pm Night Skies Program-No-Optics Stargazing
Learn how to use a sky map and discover what’s in the night sky this time of year, and hear ancient stories about some of the constellations above. Our park naturalist will show you how to determine distance in space and differentiate between airplanes and satellites. See if you can point out a planet that shares our solar system with us. After the program, pick up some astronomy information that you may find helpful in getting to know the night skies at Cherry Springs.

Visitors should park their cars in the parking lot on the north side of the park, and follow the lighted walkway to the meeting area.

8:00 pm Walk Through the History of Cherry Springs

Take a stroll back in time through Cherry Springs’ history, from the earliest settlers to “glory days” of the logging industry. Meet the naturalist at the Cherry Springs tavern replica near the large parking lot.

10:00 pm Night Skies Program-Stargazing with Binoculars
(Exceptional Eastern Objects)
Binoculars are an excellent stargazing tool. Our naturalist will show you some of the best for stargazing, and then point out some gorgeous star clusters in the eastern part of the sky. If you don’t own a pair of binoculars you may borrow one of ours. On your way out take home some astronomy information that will help you become familiar with the night skies of Cherry Springs.

Visitors should park their cars in the parking lot on the North side of the park, and follow the lighted walkway to the meeting area.

In the event of rain or more than 75% cloudy skies, observing programs may be modified and will occur in the park pavilion near the Astronomy Field.

For your safety, programs will be cancelled in the event of severe weather.

Dress warmly; Cherry Springs can be cool and breezy, even in summertime.

Please cover flashlights with a red filter or brown paper bag.
