Registration is open for Redwood National and State Parks’ annual Star Party hosted by Redwood Parks Association. 

Join astronomer and galactic adventurer Robert Scheppler of Brookings for a journey into the night sky on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 23 and 24, at Schoolhouse Peak Fire Lookout in the Bald Hills area of Redwood National and State Parks. 

The event begins with a catered dinner of food and wine, followed by a ranger-led star photography workshop. Participants will then enjoy an evening of gazing into and learning about the wonders of the night sky. 

A former college astronomy instructor, Scheppler will share his passion for the universe and lead participants in an exploration of deep time, billions of years of light, and the mysteries of the stars. 

A catered breakfast will be provided the following morning. Participants are responsible for their own sleeping arrangements.

Space for the Star Party is limited and reservations are required. Call 707-464-7327 for more information or reservations.
