Daddy daughter date night, astronomy
The Howard Christensen Nature Center, 16190 Red Pine Dr NW, Kent City, has a couple of fundraising events coming up that you won’t want to miss.
On Friday, February 24, from 6-9 p.m., dad and their daughters, ages 5-16, can enjoy a pizza dinner and an evening of dancing at the Daddy Daughter date night. In addition to dancing, there will be lots of games and activities being played throughout the evening. A light pizza dinner will be served between 6-7 p.m. Bring your dancing shoes and have a blast! Registration not required but is appreciated.
On Saturday March 3, individuals or families can have some fun learning about astronomy, from 7-9 p.m. This event will help satisfy that desire to know more about the heavens and show you how to see objects in the night. The class covers information about the earth, moon, planets and stars—from making a scale model of our systems to understanding the difference between stars. Instruction is given on viewing the night sky using binoculars and natural sight. Following the workshop, we will go outside to view the stars. Basics will be given on how to use (provided) binoculars to see the planets and stars. For more info call (616) 675-3158.
