Explore starry nights

Join us as we explore the lore, science and identification of some common winter constellations during this program 7-8:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, at PPL’s Montour Environmental Preserve.

We’ll lead this discussion on constellations and the legends and tales they have inspired since ancient times. The program will begin indoors and if the weather permits will conclude with an outdoor session. Dress warmly and be prepared to spend some time outdoors.

This free program will take place in the Environmental Education Center. For more information, contact the preserve at 570-437-3131 or jdbeam@pplweb.com.

PPL operates the preserve, about four miles northeast of Washingtonville, in conjunction with its Montour power plant in Derry Township.

The Montour Environmental Preserve is in a broad valley in the beautiful Appalachian hills. In the center of the preserve is the 165-acre Lake Chillisquaque. The preserve offers a variety of educational and recreational opportunities, including hiking, nature observation and photography, birding, boating and fishing.
