Can you remember the last time you enjoyed a snack by the campfire? Or took time to gaze at the stars? No?
Well, here is your chance to relive those fond memories from your childhood—and to create new memories with your own children.
The Forest Preserve District of Will County is hosting its "Autumn Astronomy Campfire" on Friday, Sept. 27, at Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville. The program begins indoors at 7:30 p.m. with a preview of what is visible in the fall night sky, according to a news release from forest preserve district public information officer Bruce Hodgdon.
Registration is required.
"Learn to identify stars, planets, constellations, galaxies and more," writes Hodgdon in his description of the program. "Then, if weather permits, we will head outside to the campfire to share Native American stories about the night and enjoy a campfire snack."
