STARGAZING UPDATE & Fly Casting

Due to the week’s weather forecast, Stargazing at Strawberry Hill has been canceled for August. Please join us again in September!

Wednesday, September 24 — 8:00 pm

Explore the science and the stories of the September night sky with Strawberry Hill Naturalist and local planetarium director Ian Clarke. Pack a flashlight for the hike to our viewing location – but once we get there it will be lights out, so our eyes can adapt to the relative darkness of a moonless night on the Preserve.  Ian will guide you on a tour of the stars and planets. This month, that will include a swan, a harp, a dragon, and the Milky Way. Dress in layers. You may find it warm as you hike, but chilly when you’re standing still at the stargazing site. The talk will be aimed at people using their unaided eyes, but feel free to bring binoculars. Due to the hike, however, you should leave telescopes at home. $5 members / $8 non-members; pre-registration preferred. 

____________________

In the meantime, don’t miss out on a Fly Casting Clinic from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm on Saturday, August 30th at the Preserve. George Hammond, licensed Pennsylvania Fishing Guide, will help participants get to know the fly rod, entomology, fly selection, and casting techniques in the morning. After a brown bag lunch, everyone will head up to the pond for a chance to try out their new skills at catching some fish.  $45.00 members / $55.00 non-members; Preregistration is required for this program.
