On Saturday, Aug. 20, this free community-sponsored celebration of the world of nature will be held from 4 to 10 p.m. at Jess Martin Park with parking in Julian and free shuttles.
It’s sure to be a day full of family fun, including activities for children, along with music and the chance to meet such intriguing wildlife ambassadors as hawks and barn owls.
Throughout the afternoon, informational presentations will be given by representatives from various preservation organizations.
You can also tour the booths set up around the park and participate in activities and crafts. Amateur astronomers will have their equipment set up for free viewing after dark, following a little night sky storytelling at twilight.
Organizers suggest that guests bring with folding chairs and ground covers, such as towels and blankets.
Free parking is available at the event and in town, with a free shuttle service to and from the park.
Come join the fun while celebrating the wonder of nature and the night sky.
