Presentation for Amateur Astronomers

A naturalist-led wildflower hike at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay will be offered on June 1 and 2 at the Ida Bay Forest. Both hikes will be gentle rambles in search of wildflowers and last about an hour Meet at the Collins Learning Center for both hikes.

June 3 at 7 pm, visitors are welcome to the Door Peninsula Astronomical Society’s general meeting. This month, the program will be a live video feed featuring Tom Field, the developer of RSpec spectroscopy software. He will explain how amateur astronomers can use spectroscopy “to do solid science and analyze the spectral signatures of celestial objects even from light-polluted back yards, and they can do it at pretty low cost.” Tom Minahan will offer “This Month in Astronomy.” Refreshments will be served. Meet at the Ray and Ruthie Stonecipher Astronomy Center. Please use the Utah Street Entrance to Crossroads.

Crossroads at Big Creek is a donor-supported preserve welcoming learners of all ages to programs in science, history and the environment. Summer hours for the Collins Learning Center begin June 2 and will be 1:30 – 3:30 pm daily and during scheduled events.
