Summer time is here- it’s time for long days by the pool and bright nights under the stars! It’s also time for our summer evening event series, The Canyon After Dark! Each 4th Friday of the month from June to August, the Ameal Moore Nature Center will be hosting free, family friendly evening events from 8-10pm. This past Friday we hosted Twinkle, Twinkle Riverside- a fun astronomy night with special guests Riverside Astronomical Society (RAS).
Outside visitors were invited to come out and view the stars through large telescopes focused on several of the planets in our solar system. Inside visitors painted canvas bags in galaxy style print.
Our Canyon After Dark evening events are always free and family friendly! Join us for our next event, The Insect Rave on June 22! UCR Entomology Department will be joining us as we hunt for insects in the park and party with a DJ at the center.
