Night Under the Stars - Dahlem Center in Jackson

Let’s explore and use our night senses! Join Ella Sharp Museum and the Dahlem Center for a wonderful night under the stars!

Event Location: The Dahlem Center

The night walk, led by Dahlem Naturalist Educator Carrie Benham, is to help people enjoy being outdoors after dark. We intend to help you feel safe in the dark, share information about nocturnal animals and the senses they use, and share how we as humans can better develop our own senses and awareness during the night.

Ella Sharp Museum will be providing hands-free guided telescope observing with Planetarium Operator, Austin Edmister. We will be observing to view the planets and many other celestial wonders, and watching the stars come out. Telescope observing is dependent on clear skies and weather permitting.

Tickets are nonrefundable. In the event of a rain day, tickets will be applied to a rescheduled date. Recommended for ages 16+.

Please note, outdoor capacity is limited as we will be practicing social distancing on the trails. Attendees will be required to fill out a health screening survey, have their temperature checked, and must wear a mask. There will also be hands-free telescope observing and sanitization products will be present.

Thank you for your support of two local non-profits during this difficult time.. Proceeds from this program benefit both the Dahlem Center and Ella Sharp Museum. Your ticket supports this program and future programming.

Cost: $12

For details, call (517) 787-2320.

Location: Dahlem Center: 7117 S Jackson Rd, Jackson, MI 49201
