On December 17th, we will meet at 3:30 pm for a Free Guided Nature Walk. We meet at the east door (Space Center) of the Science and Industry Museum . We will use a spotting scope to look at the winter ducks in the 59th Street Harbor and the Lake (63rd and Hayes, where we will hopefully spot the owl). We will then drive over to the Point for the 5 pm moonrise.
The meters are expensive if you park right by the East entrance. It is cheaper ($1 an hour) if you turn left into the parking lot. Parking is free if once you are in the parking lot, you drive south past the boats, over the stone bridge and park near the tennis courts. Hope to see you there! FREE EVENT.
