Join Frog Hollow Outdoors and Morehead Planetarium and Science Center for a nighttime paddle under the stars and discover what the evening hours have to offer! Leave your worries behind as we set out in canoes or kayaks to watch the sunset, soak in the star shine, and experience nature at night. And the August paddling adventure is scheduled during the peak of the Perseid meteor shower!

A Morehead astronomy educator will help us navigate our way around the night sky. These leisurely paddles are suitable for teens and adults and for all levels of paddling experience.

Educators: NC EE Criteria II credit is available.
