Starry Skies Townsite Stroll
Difficulty Rating: Easy


Join us for a short, easy stroll around the Waterton townsite after dark. This experience is offered during the shoulder-season and winter months, and is the perfect tour to get acquainted with our Dark Sky Park. Participants will examine light pollution and what is being done to mitigate it around Waterton, go in search of nocturnal creatures that may be found around town after dark, and learn to identify some of the more noteworthy constellations and night sky objects visible with the naked eye. Please note that telescopes are not used on this tour - after all, the best way to stargaze is simply to use your own two eyes!
