      Great. We can meet by the Nature Center then and maybe others will join us. I can't carpool as I live in the Woodlands which is North of this park. Looking forward to see some stars!!

      The park usually closes at dark; however, we make exceptions for those attending special programs that continue after normal park hours. No need to worry about getting locked in! The astronomy group will all meet together at the nature center/office before heading out to the stargazing site.
