Join us for an unforgettable autumn weekend under the stars at the annual Northern Prairie Star Party at Black Nugget Lake Campground. Bring your telescope and your sense of wonder for stargazing under seriously dark skies (Bortle Scale 3).

Daytime activities abound – the site is located on a major fall migration flyway and offers exceptional birding opportunities. Lake shore campsites are available, with canoeing and fishing at your doorstep.

Access to the site is entirely by paved road about an hour from Edmonton, making this an easy way to join fellow amateur astronomers for some autumn observing at a convenient dark sky site.

It is highly recommended that attendees reserve a campground site as soon as possible (starting May 1) by contacting the Northern Prairie event coordinators, Susan and Rick Bramm.

For further information please contact Susan and Rick Bramm.
