Half the park is after dark! Whether you have yet to experience the grandeur of the Milky Way, or you are a dedicated amateur astronomer, come experience McCarthy Beach's dark skies. View the stars and sun through telescopes, hone your night sky photography skills in a workshop, learn constellations from an Ojibway Skywatcher, and many more programs. Join us for a weekend of fun programs and share your passion for the night sky and astronomy.
