Night Hike: Fall Equinox

What is the significance of the fall equinox?
During the equinox, both halves of the Earth are receiving the sun’s rays equally. In the Northern Hemisphere, the fall equinox officially brings summer to an end and kicks off fall.
The night sky and the cosmos have been a source of inspiration and amazement throughout human history. Join us for an evening at Pleasant Hill and explore the starry sky! On this gentle hike through the Preserve, take in the wonders of the prairie and forest at night while discovering some of the mysteries and curiosities of the universe. Along the way, we will observe constellations while exploring the cultural and scientific importance of the fall equinox.
