Get Outdoors Club – “Night Life” (all ages): So much happens after the sun sets! This month, we’ll give you some tips for stargazing and we’ll learn about moon phases and constellations. Try a night ‘Bug Hunt’ to see what bugs you are missing when it’s dark. Not into bugs? How about a ‘Bat Watch?’ We’ll also show you how to bring the cosmos inside with a “Galaxy in a Jar” craft.
