Arboretum Summer Activities

Star Party
A Star Party is a gathering of amateur astronomers viewing the night sky or people just wanting to know more about what they see in the night sky! Participants may bring telescopes, binoculars, finder/viewing scopes or nothing. We will spend the evening observing Jupiter, Saturn, the Moon and other deep sky objects together.
