Winter Solstice Star Celebration
Adults, children ages 9 and up

Join professor/astronomer Mark Freilich for an evening of star gazing and a party in celebration of the winter solstice. What is a “solstice”? How does it relate to the sun and the earth?

APEC Hiking Club and Trail Crew

Our Hiking Club is for adults, and we will explore local areas suited for easy to moderate hikes. We will also contribute to the muscle required to develop a Trail Crew to benefit the Environmental Center. APEC membership is required, and we will also be members of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (requiring additional dues). The Club covers these extra costs by chipping in $2 per monthly outing that you attend. The Conference will guide us in how we develop the trail crew. We intend to whistle while we work, so come out for the fun.

We will have a monthly informational meeting to discuss plans for upcoming hikes, monthly outings and other opportunities, in addition to the regular weekly hikes planned by the group (weather and season permitting). Plan to join us to see what we are up to on the dates listed below! APEC Hikers takes advantage of the fine weather and longer days by scheduling weekly hikes for its membership. To learn more about these hikes and our regular outings, please visit www.facebook.com/APEC.hikers or e-mail the Club facilitator at tom0153 (at) hotmail (dot) com.
