San Juan Dragons Spaghetti Dinner
Don’t Forget! It’s tonight – Tuesday, March 5 from 5-7 San Juan Dragons Lacrosse Club Spaghetti Fundraiser at the Masonic Hall (above Dance Happy/Second Act). $12. Amazing dessert action. Perfect spot to have dinner before the Winter Sports Awards.
Fiona Norris of the San Juan Nature Institute sends notice over of a telescope party this coming Saturday. Check this out:
The night of March 9 is the best opportunity, weather permitting, to explore the heavens to find some, or all, of the 110 deep sky objects listed by comet hunter Charles Messier in 1781. On that night, San Juan Nature Institute in collaboration with amateur astronomer Geneva Mottett, has organized a Messier Marathon. The venue is a private home near False Bay and directions will be provided on registration.
The cost per person is $20 and registrations can be made on line at www.sjnature.org or by emailing science [@] sjnature.org.
Participants are invited to arrive at 6 p.m. for an introductory talk and to spend the night exploring the night sky. It will be cold so we recommend you bring warm clothes, folding chair, brown bag supper and flasks of hot drinks- cocoa is suggested! Bring your own binoculars and share telescopes provided by local astronomy buffs. This will be a night to remember so stay as long as you like.
This is the first of four workshops planned by San Juan Nature Institute in the next few months. Lichen workshops on Lopez and San Juan Island, wild flower walks on Yellow Island and a marine exploration at low tide in May are being arranged. Details will appear in the press and on the website www.sjnature.org.
