Litchfield's White Memorial Foundation is planning late February events that will entertain the whole family. On Feb. 20 for example, visitors are invited to a "star party". This astronomy program is organized by members of the Litchfield Hills Amateur Astronomy Club and the Mattatuck Astronomical Society. Weather permitting, there will be Star gazing after the program. 7:00 P.M., A.B. Ceder Room. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. You are invited to bring your own telescope or binoculars.
A winter walk with staff member Gerri Griswold at 10 a.m. is a "pot luck" walk on the trails. Participants will figure out what trails are most favorable for a stroll! On this walk you are sure to drink in the beauty of winter! 10:00 A.M., Meet in front of the A. B. Ceder Room.
To round out the month, on Feb. 28 there will be a program titled: Magic Light Show: the Science and Beauty of the Aurora Borealis with Tom Alena. Participants will learn about one of nature's most striking and compelling phenomena, The Northern Lights, with Conservation Center favorite Tom Alena. Tom has the extraordinary ability of taking complicated science and making it easy to understand. This afternoon's program will be beautifully illustrated with photographs by the Keeper of the Northern Lights, Olgeir Andresson
