The night sky is the largest natural resource at George Washington Carver National Monument.

This free program will begin with a 30-minute long indoor power point program followed by a night sky tour and Storytelling on Saturday, November 23rd at 6:30 p.m. The outside portion will be cancelled if it is raining so please call the park or check the park Facebook page for program updates. A telescope will be provided to enhance viewing opportunities.

Special guest Robert Lewis who is a member of the Cherokee Nation and who is currently employed by them under the title School/Community Specialist will be a part of the program. Mr. Lewis likes to interact with the audience and involve them with the story; Interactive storytelling is a technique he developed that energizes the oral narrative by actively engaging the audience in a participatory manner.

Young astronomers can earn a special “Junior Ranger Night Explorer” patch and certificate by learning more about the night sky. Kids of all ages can also learn about our moon, constellations, and other planets with various activities and crafts. Please ask a ranger when you arrive for details.
