Crow’s Nest: Weekend events

May 24, 2013

It may be a holiday weekend, but there are still events going on at Crow’s Nest Preserve. Tomorrow the Philadelphia Botanical Club will be visiting Crow’s Nest to do some careful surveys of plants here. Over several visits during the last few years the Club has been looking at one section of the preserve at a time to do a comprehensive inventory.

On Sunday evening the Chesmont Astronomy Club will be holding their monthly meeting at Crow’s Nest. The speaker will be William D. Hanagan, Jr., PhD, President of the Delaware Astronomical Society and Technical Associate for the Mt. Cuba Observatory. The topic is part one of a two-part program about addressing optical errors that can occur with telescopes. Also Sunday evening there will be a presentation on the “Galaxy Illusions” Advanced Observing Program and Highlights of the Texas Star Party.

This weekend will also be a good time to get outside and enjoy the preserve with your family!
