Stars Over the Susquehanna

  • Map

    Back for 2019! Come to the river for an “out of this world” experience! Join Susquehanna Heritage at both of their locations to Find Your Park After Dark. At Columbia Crossing, join us for a star party at Columbia River Park with the Astronomy Enthusiasts of Lancaster County (AELC) to explore the cosmos up close with telescopes. At the Zimmerman Center for Heritage discover how early explorers like Captain John Smith navigated using the stars and explore the stories Native Americans told using the stars.

    New this year! At both sites, children ages 5-12 can complete the Night Explorer Junior Ranger Badge! Kids can then become a sworn in as Junior Ranger by the National Park Service at The Zimmerman Center and get their own badge and patch. Program will be held rain or shine.
