Bats are often feared and needlessly disliked, but are an important part of the natural world. Join the park naturalist for an informative talk about this interesting and important nocturnal hunter and discover a day (or night) in the life of a bat-how it sleeps, how it eats and how it can benefit humans. Meet the naturalist at the pavilion.

August 8, 2009 9:30 pm Night Skies Program: Deep Space Observation
Discover the night sky of Cherry Springs. Learn what is visible this time of year, how to navigate between the constellations, and differentiate between satellites and airplanes. Participants will view nebulae and star clusters within the constellations Cygnus the Swan, Lyra the Lyre, Hercules the Strongman and Sagittarius the Archer through telescopes set up for the event. Participants are invited to pick up some information that will help in becoming familiar with the night sky at their homes.
