Outreach Event at the Ledges Shelter
in Virginia Kendall Park

Help the Cuhahoga Valley National Park
Recognize International Dark Sky Week!

ACA's invitation from the National Parks Service follows:

I'm back from winter break and planning for upcoming Astronomy programs at Cuyahoga Valley National Park.  To recognize International Dark Sky Week we have scheduled an Astronomy program for Ledges Shelter on Friday, April 8 from 8-10:00pm.  If you would be interested and available to assist it would be greatly helpful.  Please let me know if you can assist me, and if so please plan to arrive at the Ledges Shelter area off Kendall Park Road between 7-7:15pm to set up telescopes, etc.  Please let me know if you would like to arrive earlier to take advantage of better light conditions for set up, I can assist you with that.  Please tell members of the Astronomy Club that they are welcome, and I would enjoy and appreciate them coming and sharing their interest and knowledge.
