In addition, Dr. Tyler Nordgren will give a presentation about astronomy in national parks. A professor of physics and astronomy at University of Redlands, Dr. Nordgren is well known for his beautiful vintage-inspired posters of national parks under the darkness of night.

In the event of rain, the telescope viewing will be canceled, but Dr. Nordgren’s talk and the kids’ activities will still happen beneath a covered pavilion. Check the link below for additional info.
