The city of Lancaster invites residents to join SAGE Planetarium Director Jeremy Amarant on a one-mile tour of the Prime Desert Woodlands Preserve. The walk will take place on Saturday, Aug. 24, and will begin at 8 p.m. Participants will learn facts about observable phenomena in the night sky while enjoying the serene beauty of the Preserve.

Weather permitting, the A.V. Astronomy Club will be present with telescopes to offer a closer look at the night sky. Lancaster Park Rangers and the Preserve’s Interpretive Center staff will also be available to answer questions and add to the fun.

The Prime Desert Woodlands Preserve is located at 35th Street West and K-8. The event is open to the public, and a $2 donation is welcome. For more information, call the city’s Parks, Recreation and Arts Department at (661) 723-6077.
