Astronomy Weekend

Fri, July 26th to Mon, July 29th
Heather Matheson
Lorne Klassen

Enjoy some of the darkest nighttime skies in southern Manitoba from the idyllic setting of the Mantario Wilderness Zone. With a thin crescent moon not rising until early morning, we'll take advantage of the dark to learn to navigate the stars, be amazed at the majesty of the Milky Way, view the wonders of the Universe through a telescope, and possibly enjoy some Northern Lights and meteors.

Astronomy weekend isn't only for die-hard astronomers - all are welcome! During the day we'll travel by canoe and on foot, exploring the area as far and wide or as close to home as participants desire. Possibilities include hiking part of the Mantario Trail, an evening paddle to Sunset Hill, fishing, wildlife viewing, blueberry picking, and day trips to nearby lakes.
