February 10: Star Party: A Penumbral Eclipse of the Moon 6:30-8:30pm

This is an interesting and odd-ball program, as most penumbral lunar eclipses go unnoticed. The moon passes through the earth’s partial shadow and turns a dim brown color. Plus, a view of the winter skies. No backup date. $6 for members, $9 for nonmembers.

February 14: Sweetheart Snowshoe   7-9pm

February 25: Mammal Tracking Workshop     10:30am-12:30pm

This program is sold out, but we hope you will consider a visit to The Woods.  We have snowshoes available for rent for $5 for nonmembers and free to our members! Our trails are beautiful this time of year!

Join us for this fun interactive workshop all about tracking mammals in the snow! We will learn the basics of tracking and trace ID and then go outside to investigate what the animals have been up to in the woods. We will spend most of our time outdoors so be sure to dress for the weather! This program is suitable for all ages. $6 for members, $9 for nonmembers.
