Saturday April 20, 2013

A walk on the Nature Trail, led by Desert Naturalist, Darrell Shade, and an update on the “Curiosity” by special guest, Dr. Tim Parker of the JPL Mars Rover team and Ray Yeager will highlight Discovery Day on Saturday, April 20, starting at 9 am.

Families and life-long learners of all ages are welcome at this free event at Sky’s the Limit Observatory and Nature Center, just north of the entrance to the Joshua Tree National Park on Utah Trail in Twentynine Palms.

Other activities will include the opportunity to look through solar scopes and a spectroscope, and the opportunity to step into our solar system via the Orrery.

Everyone is strongly encouraged to bring water bottles, chairs, and their own snacks, to wear hats and plenty of sunscreen, and to dress for unpredictable desert weather.
