Family Campout at Ansonia Nature Center to mark anniversary

ANSONIA - Spend the night camping with your family and friends at the Ansonia Nature and Recreation Center to celebrate Ansonia's 125th anniversary on the weekend of Aug. 9-10.
The Family Campout and Star Party will be held from 5 p.m. Aug. 9 to 10:30 a.m. Aug. 10. The nature center is at 10 Deerfield Road.

Relax in your chaise lounge while we search the night skies for “shooting stars.”

Bob Carruthers and the New Haven Astronomical Society will be available to talk about the Perseid meteor showers.

Bring your own camping equipment, picnic dinner, and beverages. (Non-alcoholic drinks, please.)

We will also enjoy a nice fire and stories at Picnic Pavilion #2, where we will make everyone’s favorite camping treat, s'mores.

Awaken in the morning to the beautiful sounds of the Nature Center’s many bird species and join us for breakfast.

Fee is $10 per family, which includes breakfast. 
To register, call the nature center, 203-736-1053.

This is a press release from Melissa Torres, activities coordinator, Ansonia 125.
