Star-gazing and Storytelling: A Nature-based Literacy Event
Friday, January 20, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EST)
This starry event combines a short astronomy presentation, a giant telescope, night sky binoculars, and stories from children’s books to bring the starry skies to life for all ages. We'll be reading form books appropriate for elementary students.
Join Astronomy Gal, Linda Jacobson, CREW volunteer and former planetarum director, Roger Grossenbacher, Collier County teacher Holly Hamilton, and CREW Environmental Educator, Deb Hanson for a fun night of star gazing and storytelling at CREW.
We’ll even include book lists for you to take home to continue your learning journey.
Bring the whole family for a beautiful night under the stars in a dark sky.
This event takes place at the CREW Trust offices (23998 Corkscrew Road, Estero, FL 33928). DO NOT use Google Maps to get directions, as it will send you to the wrong place. We will email directions to all participants the week before the event.
This event is free, but donations are welcome. Registration is required. Space is limited. SIgn up today.
When & Where
CREW Land & Water Trust
The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation. CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
