January Outreach

Join members of the Shoreline Amateur Astronomical Association on Saturday, January 19th at 7:00 p.m. at the Ottawa County Parks Nature Education Center for a one hour indoor program on Life Cycles of Stars.

Stars, just like people, go through a life cycle. They are born in “stellar nurseries,” mature, and die. Some of them go away quietly while others explode with far-reaching effects in the Universe. This program will feature these wonderful events and show how you are made of “star stuff.” This program will be held rain, snow, or shine (as long as road and weather conditions are safe).

The indoor program will be followed by an outdoor sky viewing session (weather permitting). For the outdoor viewing, telescopes will be provided. Bring binoculars (if you have them), and dress to be outside. There is no program fee and advance registration is not required. This program is for adults and older children.

The Nature Education Center is located at Hemlock Crossing County Park in Port Sheldon Township. From US 31, travel west on Croswell St. a short distance to West Olive Rd. Travel south on West Olive Rd. about 0.3 miles to the park entrance. The Nature Education Center is located at the end of the park road.
