how slaves used stars to find their way along the Underground Railroad.
We’ll discover fun facts about astronomy and constellations, and each
participant will make his/her own star wheel for locating constellations
in the night sky. We’ll complete the program with some stargazing in
the Garden and marshmallows by the campfire.
