Snowshoe and Stargaze

Come take part in two unique experiences at Elk Island National Park: snowshoeing and stargazing! A short guided snowshoe hike around the shore of Astotin Lake takes you atop the snow like a snowshoe hare while stars twinkle overhead. As you march along, the welcoming crackle of a campfire eclipses the soft sounds of nature surrounding you. With a park interpreter and Orion as your guide, gaze up into a sky full of stars and learn to navigate the night sky of the Beaver Hills Dark Sky Preserve. Without the glow of city lights you’ll see more than you knew existed!

Dates: Saturdays || December 11, 18 || January 8, 15, 22, 29 || February 5, 12, 19
