Beyond the Stars

“Power down. Look up.”

Join us along the shores of Lake Annette for one of the most memorable star gazing experiences in the world. Offering people of all ages a variety of free, intimate, and interactive programming with the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada – Edmonton Center, Dark Sky Photographers, Parks Canada Interpreters, and other special guests. No charge !

Shuttles: Please note that there will be no parking permitted at the event. A complimentary shuttle service is provided. Busses will depart every 15 min from the Visitor Information Centre Lawn between 7:45pm-10:45pm and return from 8:00pm-11:15pm.

 

Come join Joy and Sean on this family-friendly night hike up on Pyramid Bench. You will have the opportunity to learn all about our nocturnal wildlife while we hike this scenic 4km loop. There will be great views of our Dark Sky Preserve from the trail as well as the town lit up at night. We will finish in time for Trivia Night at The Legion.

Meet at the Activities Centre P3 lot. Everyone is required to bring a flashlight (fully-charged phone is fine) for safety; however, we plan on not using them for the hike. We will rely on our eyes adjusting to night vision instead. A dim, red light or red cellophane wrap is acceptable and if you have a headlamp that can switch between the two settings, that’s ideal. Good hiking shoes will be mandatory as we will be out there in the dark, in potentially snowy conditions. Expect an elevation gain of around 100m.

Tickets: $25.00
