Midsummer Star Gazing at its Best

The White Memorial Foundation is hosting its free Star Party on August 25 at 8pm. The one-hour astronomy program is organized by members of the Litchfield Hills Amateur Astronomy Club and the Mattatuck Astronomical Society.

If the weather permits, there will be star gazing after the program. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. All are invited to bring your own telescope or binoculars. Donations are appreciated to help defray the conservation center’s programming expenses.

The White Memorial Conservation Center is located in the heart of the 4,000-acre White Memorial Foundation in Litchfield. The environmental education center and nature museum have exhibits focusing on the interpretation of local natural history, conservation and ecology, as well as a museum nature store. Dormitory and classroom facilities on the property extend the opportunities for visitors to interact with the natural world. The outdoor arena includes the wildlife sanctuary maintained by the White Memorial Foundation.
