Starry Nite
at Crowley Museum & Nature Center
March 5, 2011
5:00 PM - 10:00 PM

The evening is rustic elegant, the dress is casual, and is celebrated outdoors in a beautiful tent with twinkling lights, a catered wine dinner, and great music. View the beautiful night sky through the many telescopes supplied by the Deep Sky Obersever Group. Come early for the hayride that travels the old pine level trail to our pioneer history center; walk the nature trails and boardwalk; or catch a glimpse of the nesting bald eagles. Enjoy the silent and live auction; from which the proceeds go to support Crowley’s environmental and history education programs. This is the most unique and fun fundraising event in the region; “DON’T MISS IT”. The ticket price will be posted in December, 2010.
