Perseid Meteor Shower Party

Children, For the Family, General, Nature

Take a leisurely stroll through the McDowell Prairie as the new moon falls on the peak viewing nights of the Perseid Meteor Shower. With cooperative weather, we may see up to 90 meteors per hour as we hike, stopping along the way to gaze up at the stars. An email will be send out prior to the event with more information. Pre-registration required (for all participants, adult and child alike). Notes: Meeting place will be at the Four Horse Rd entrance of the McDowell Prairie. This hike qualifies for our 100 mile hike club. Come prepared to hike approximately 2 to 3 miles on uneven terrain. Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, long pants and weather-appropriate, comfortable clothing. Please bring your own water bottle. Red flashlights will be provided. Be advised that event will be cancelled if inclement weather arises.
