About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, November 13, 2021.

Join Vicky Derksen for a special Stargazing Hike in the Preserve after sunset when it’s normally closed to the public. Hike under a First Quarter Moon stopping to take a naked eye tour of the sky as Vicky points out celestial objects with a laser. The local Star Dudes will have telescope viewing ready at the end of the hike for a close-up look at Jupiter and Saturn. This hike is suitable for ages 6 years and up. Allow 90 minutes for a 2-mile hike on a moderate trail. Bring water, wear comfortable clothing, closed-toed shoes with treads or hiking boots, and hiking poles, if needed. Use a red flashlight or headlamp during this hike to make it easier for your eyes to adjust to better view the stars and experience hiking under the bright moon. Trail leaders will have regular flashlights for emergencies. Pre-Registration is Required Meet at Adero Canyon Trailhead 14800 N Eagle Ridge Dr
