Celebrate the Winter Solstice Saturday, December 22 from 1 to 5:30 p.m. at the Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum.
From 1 to 4 p.m., enjoy Navajo star stories in the Starlab, a portable planetarium.
At 4:30 p.m., weather permitting, gather at the Solar Marker sculpture with artist Joe Pachak to observe the play of light and shadow as the sun sets just before sundown. The Solar Marker is a modern re-creation and living laboratory for the study of archaeoastronomy representing numerous rock art sites where ancient people marked the movement of the stars and changing seasons.
Following the sundown program, join us in the auditorium for a presentation by Joe Pachak on Solstice markers and the landscape. Refreshments will be served. This event is open and free to the public. For more information call 435-678-2238.
