Astronomy & Owl Prowl

December 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please note, this event is for registered for Nature Initiative members only. To learn more about our youth program, click here.

Join us for an evening of winter fun! Our astronomy crew will be opening up the observatory for us where we will be logging in to the Mobile Robotic Observatory (MRO) to capture images of deep sky objects. They’ll also be operating the telescopes attached to monitors to allow for hands free observation. After our astronomy activity, we’ll take an owl prowl hike through the woods of Avalon- we will have a guest doing the owl calls and we’ll see if they reply!

We will be meeting at the Avalon barn located on Shep Jones Lane in Stony Brook.

**The Earth and Outdoors Club from Smithtown HS East will be joining our group for this event.

What to bring/further instructions:

  • Please dress warm and wear layers
  • Sneakers or hiking boots comfortable for walking on the trails
  • Binoculars
  • Headlamp/flashlight (I will have extra)
