November


Sunday, November 1, 6:30 p.m. - FIRST DAY / FULL MOON HIKE

Come explore the park by the light of a full moon. Bring a snack to share around a campfire afterwards and a flashlight. Fee: $5; families, $15; members, free.





Saturday, November 14, 6:30 p.m. - FALL STAR PARTY

Mike and Mary Sinkovich will host this autumn star party, beginning with some tips about telescopes and finding good astronomy resources on the Internet and ending in the upper field, where viewing is ideal. Dress in warm layers. All levels of stargazers welcome; bring a cheap flashlight and we'll transform it into a red light with nail polish. Total cloud-out and rain are unpredictable; call the park if the weather looks iffy. Fee: $5; $15 for families; members, free.



Sunday, November 15, 1 p.m. - HOLIDAY CENTERPIECE AND NATURE CRAFTS

Let's take a walk to gather some of nature's treasures and create a piece of art—maybe a wreath, ornament, or centerpiece. Bring your creativity, a container for your artwork (like a shoebox or a picture frame) and any accessories you might want to add. Bring your own tools—scissors, glue, glue gun—if you have them; we'll have a limited supply available to share. Children 3 to 103 welcome! All activities are outside, so dress for the weather! Fee: $5; members, free.



Sunday, November 22, 1 p.m. - THE FIVE ELEMENTS - WATER

According to Chinese philosophy, the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, and water are believed to be the fundamental elements of everything in the universe, and each element has its own connections with different aspects of nature. Tami Noonan's workshops have explored these relationships and interactions and how they might influence you, with hands-on experiences as well as reflection and discussion. In this final workshop, we will explore Metal, which is associated with winter, the color black, and cold climates. Dress for the weather, as the workshop will be held outside. Fee: Free-will donation.
