Cross Quarter Evening Sky Cruise
August 1 @ 8:45 pm - 10:15 pm$29
Halfway through the season we come to the “cross quarter,” a terrific time to be out on the Straits where the great lakes meet. In addition to seasonal tales connected to the sky at cross quarter, we share locally baked bread on this cruise, in honor the first wheat harvest that is celebrated in this season.
Each Shepler’s evening sky cruise cruise features narration provided by night sky expert and star lore historian Mary Stewart Adams. Host of the weekly public radio segment, The Storyteller’s Night Sky, Mary was founder and program director for many years of the International Dark Sky Park at the Headlands near Mackinaw City, one of the first ten such parks in the world when it was designated in 2011. Mary has won numerous honors personally for her work, she travels extensively advocating for dark skies, and has helped protect thousands of acres of Michigan state land for its natural darkness.
