Please join us for a guided tour of the night sky and view the Perseids Meteor Shower! John R. Kirk Planetarium Director Raj Pandya will lead us through the stars and constellations. Each year in August, Earth passes through the trail of debris left behind by comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Small bits of dust left behind by the comet burn up in Earth’s atmosphere, creating a meteor shower. Shooting stars appear to originate from the constellation Perseus, hence the name, “Perseids.” The dark skies undisturbed by major light pollution at the Mohonk Preserve are an outstanding viewing location. Bring a flashlight, warm layers, and a camp chair or blanket to lay on. Masks are required for those not fully vaccinated. Children age 5 and up are welcome and must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required and limited; register early. No walk ins. Fee: $10 per person.

Join Jane Dobson, Mindful Nature Guide, in the Japanese practice of Forest Bathing. Introduced in the 1980s, Forest Bathing began as a preventative healthcare practice to counter the daily stress of everyday life. Even after small periods of time in a natural environment, we experience real and measurable physical and mental health benefits including reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol, improved mood and focus. Join us as we move mindfully through a forested landscape actively engaging our senses and opening ourselves to the awe and beauty of the present moment. This program will be 100% outdoors masks are required for those who are not vaccinated. Ages 16 and up welcome and must be accompanied by an adult. No dogs allowed. Wear layers and proper footwear. Registration is required and limited to 10. The cost per person for Mohonk Preserve members: $20/session. The cost for non-members: $23/session.
