Staff at Delaware Canal State Park will offer a late night paddle program to view the Perseid Meteor Shower on Saturday Aug. 11 from 10 pm to 2 am at the Giving Pond Recreation Area in Upper Black Eddy.
Online registration is required at http://tinyurl.com/DCSPcal or call Ian at (610) 982-0166.
The Perseid Meteor Shower is well-suited to families and is one of the most easily viewable, with averages of 50-60 meteors per hour. Participants in this program will begin with boating basics and a nighttime tour of Giving Pond, then settle back to watch for meteors for a few hours.
A $20 donation is requested per person and includes the use of a boat, paddles and life jackets. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Family discounts are available. The program will be canceled in the event of rainy or persistently overcast conditions.
Delaware Canal State Park educators offer regular educational and recreational programs.
