CAMDEN — Coastal Mountains Land Trust and Miss Amy (Hand) from the Camden Public Library will team up for an early evening of sky gazing on Friday, September 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Beech Hill Preserve in Rockport. Land Trust staff will open Beech Nut, the historic sod-roofed stone hut on top of Beech Hill preserve, for this special evening. There will be several telescopes available and Miss Amy will provide guidance for celestial viewing. Be sure to bring a blanket to sit on, jackets for cool weather, and a flashlight to help guide your way down the ¾-mile gentle farm road!

This event is weather dependent, making pre-registration required so that we may contact you if the Star Party is cancelled due to cloudy weather.

Email, or call 207-236-7091 to register. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Beech Hill Preserve is a 295-acre conservation property, managed for the complementary purposes of maintaining its scenic beauty, historic value, grassland bird habitat, and organic blueberry production.
