A few nights ago, Jude and I hiked up Beech Hill Preserve (on the easy side), to do a family portrait session and to be a part of the star gazing event up there. This event is put on by Beech Hill Preserve & Camden Public Library, and I think this was their fourth of fifth year? They had telescopes, a book reading, star cookies, a warm fire and a gentlemen that talked a good 30 minutes about the stars!
I highly recommend this event for children and families!
My suggestions if you attend next year
- If the event takes place in October, bring hats, mittens, winter jackets and blankets (it get’s a bit windy up there!)
- Bring a flashlight
- Head on up AFTER sunset
