Come hike the trails of the Wildlife Refuge under a new moon. A new moon is the first lunar phase, which means it will not be visible at all. This means the stars will be at their brightest! And the lack of moonlight does not mean the inhabitants of the woods have gone to sleep – there’s still plenty of activity to see and hear. During this guided hike we will take advantage of the quiet autumn air by listening for the nighttime creatures of Harding Township as they prepare for the change of season. This hike is limited to 20 night owls, so don’t miss out – register today!
And if you’re still enjoying the night’s sky, venture over to the GSWA headquarters (just a few short miles away at 568 Tempe Wick Rd., Morristown) to join in on Astronomy Night. The North Jersey Astronomical Group will lead us through a viewing of the September night stars and constellations out on display. This viewing will take place 8:00-10:30 PM and we invite you to participate for some or all of this event. Space is limited so please register here for this portion of the evening. Note: This stargazing event is weather permitting – Please be sure to check for updates closer to the event.
Registration is required for both events.
