Reading Ranger at the McCreary County Library

10:30 am - 08/19/2017

@ Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area

4564 Leatherwood Rd
Oneida TN  37841



Join Park Rangers at the McCreary County Public Library for a fun children’s Storytime and Jr Ranger activity about the night sky at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 19th. August is an especially great time to look up at the sky since the Perseid Meteor Shower is on August 12th and a solar eclipse is on Monday, August 21. Dark skies are essential natural, scientific, cultural, and economic resources. National parks are home to some of the last remaining dark skies in the country. The Big South Fork NRRA is committed to protecting the night sky by inspiring the next generation to appreciate the stars as a cherished resource and become stewards.

The park hosts night sky programs through the summer with its partners from the University of Tennessee. For more information about these programs go to: https://www.nps.gov/biso/planyourvisit/astronomy.htm

This is a great opportunity to work towards your Big South Fork Junior Ranger badge as well as this year’s GOBIG patch. The Go Big 2017 Challenge is a year-long, self-paced, park-wide event created to encourage you to go out and explore YOUR Park. For more information go to: https://www.nps.gov/biso/planyourvisit/go-big-2017-challenge.htm

For more information about the Reading Ranger program or directions please call the Blue Heron Interpretive Center at (606) 376-3787.
