Gateway to the Stars is an introductory stargazing program where park interpreters guide participants using star charts to find some of the major constellations visible in the night sky in the fall.

A campfire and a friendly park interpreter are included. Telescopes are not used in this program.

Underneath it all Wednesday Addams is just a regular teenage girl. And like any normal teenage girl these days, Wednesday wants to be a Pop Star. After searching high and low, she’s having a little trouble finding a band to play with her though… maybe her new band mates are closer than she thinks.
