Programs at Cherry Springs State Park

April 30 9:00 pm Night Skies Program-No-Optics Stargazing

Discover the night sky of Cherry Springs without the use of any optical equipment. Learn how a sky map works and use the Big Dipper as a reference point to find your way around the stars. The park’s naturalist will share ancient stories about some of the constellations during a laser guided sky tour. See if you can identify some of the visible planets during the tour. After the program, pick up some astronomy information that you may find helpful in getting to know the night skies at Cherry Springs.

May 1 8:00 pm Timberdoodle Trot
The American Woodcock, also known as the “Timberdoodle”, migrates through Cherry Springs each year. See a mounted specimen and hear the mating call of the male Woodcock in his singing grounds. We will take a stroll along the north side of the park and try to spot a male performing his mating “dance.” Meet the naturalist at the Night Skies View area on the north side of the park. Participants should wear sturdy shoes.

May 1 9:30 pm Night Skies Program
(The Last of the Winter Objects)

Telescopes help us to see objects in the night sky that are beyond our vision. Through the telescopes set up onsite, view star clusters in the constellations Auriga, Perseus and Cancer before they retreat for the season. After the program, pick up some astronomy information that you may find helpful in getting to know the night skies at Cherry Springs.
