Are you intrigued about the night sky? Ever wondered about the stories behind the stars? Join Joan Veilleux from the Forest Service for a safe night hike and some stargazing on the shores of Twin Lakes. Learn how to see and hike in the dark. Listen to stories of the past and present and learn how to reduce light pollution!

Meet at Red Rooster Boating/Fishing Site on Hwy 82.  (Turn off the highway where you see the sign for boat tours and the White Star campground – between the Twin Lakes Village and Power Plant)

Please dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes, bring a camp chair or blanket and a headlamp that has a red (or low-light color) setting! 

Please install the app “Stellarium” on your phone prior to coming to the program.
