Next Star Party

February 5 - 6

Come out to GMARS to enjoy the clean, cool air and the winter constellations! But come prepared – nighttime temperatures have been in the 30s and 40s lately. Brr! Be sure to bring a heavy jacket, thick socks, sturdy shoes, head cover and gloves!

Our Saturday Star-B-Qs will start a little early as we get through the winter season due to the short days and early sunsets.
