Explore the Night: Night Hikes & Guided Telescope Observing - Dahlem Center in Jackson
Join Ella Sharp Museum and the Dahlem Center for a wonderful night under the stars! Let’s explore and use our night senses. The goal for our night walk led my Dahlem Naturalist Educator Carrie Benham is to help people enjoy being outdoors after dark, help them feel safe, and share information about nocturnal animals, the senses they use at night, and how we can better develop our own senses and awareness of the dark. Afterwards, Ella Sharp will be providing guided telescope observing. Event start time varies (depending on the sunset) and night sky observing is after sunset to view the planets, watch the stars come out, and many other celestial wonders. Telescope observing is dependent on clear skies.

Price: $8 for members (either Dahlem or Ella) / $10 for non-members

Dates: Third Thursday of every month through 2021 (no event in May)
