Saturday, September 14, beginning at dusk, the Niagara Chapter of the Royal Astronomical Society members make their annual journey to that Walkers Creek Park for a night of star gazing … bring the children … they can play on the very nearby Playground … bring warm sweaters and lawn chairs … and certainly bring your curiosity and questions. The expert members of  Astronomical Society really enjoy introducing folks to the sky above, answering questions for the individuals, willing to suggest equipment you might use to begin or advance in your personal sky watching.


A good idea is to bring a flashlight so you can safely follow the paths as the evening winds down and you head back to your car.  Wilcher Drive parking will place you closest to the event site in Cindy Drive Park … Parnell is another good bet and a bit longer walk  into Cindy Drive Park… and Cindy Drive  is an alternative for the person who enjoys an evening stroll. 


Come a  bit early and collect your free copy of the fabulous “Homeowners Stewardship Guide to Walkers Creek”. This quality booklet, a cooperative venture by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority and the “Friends of Walkers Creek … WCNA”, is a guide to the area, an informative review of good practices in keeping the Creek and Parks healthy and prosperous and the listing of native plants that are home garden friendly ,can be just what you have always wanted since you moved to this area. And while you are at it, see if you can locate some of the 425 trees and shrubs added to the Parks this past Saturday as part of the “TD Friends of the Environment Foundation” grant that was our contribution to the Foundation’s goal of planting one million trees across Canada on that one day!! Only Native species of the Carolinian forest made this extra ordinary planting a major step forward to preserve and support this City and WCNA goal of retaining and encouraging a view forward based on the reality of the past.  And to get a sense of the great volunteer activity last Saturday, check out a previous article on this website that has close to one hundred photos taken during that planting event.
