August is one of the best months for stargazing because the weather is warm and the richest part of the Milky Way arcs up over the horizon in the South, with mystery and promise and beauty. Join Little Traverse Conservancy for a wilderness hike to the stars with Mary Stewart Adams. We will watch the waxing Crescent Moon on its silent path toward fiery red Mars and golden Saturn in the West, followed on by the red giant Antares and the Sagittarius tea pot, tipping toward the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. Mary is the Program Director for the Emmet County’s International Dark Sky Park at the Headlands. Registration is required by calling LTC at 231-347-0991 or going to our website, www.landtrust.org. Program is suitable for families, but we will be hiking about 1.5 miles. Please bring something to sit on that is easy to carry on the hike.
