Star Stories and the Night Sky - Weeks State Park Event
(07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

 

This program about the stories behind the stars uses myths and a gentle mix of science, along with audience participation to introduce the wonders of the night sky.   Come and find out which planets are out tonight; the origins of your zodiac sign; and how to tell a planet from a star.  We will start indoors, but if the sky is clear we will also go out on the front lawn to view the night sky and the Perseid Meteor Showers that are active on this date. So, bring a jacket or sweater and perhaps a blanket or lawn chair to sit on. This is a family program for ages 6-106.

 

Our presenter is Matthew Krug, a teacher and storyteller living in the Mount Washington Valley.  He has told stories in schools, libraries, alongside trails and campfires, aboard ship, on skis, and in canoes. He is a member of the Mountain Storytellers of Conway, NH; The New Hampshire Storyteller’s Alliance; and the New Hampshire Astronomical Society.

 

This program will be in the Great Room of the Summit Lodge of Weeks State Park.  Come early and bring a picnic supper, or climb the Fire Tower for one of the best views north of the notches.

What Did We Rescue? Archeological Discoveries in Jefferson - Weeks State Park Event
(07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

 

Prior to new construction over a portion of the 12,000-year old Jefferson archeological site, volunteers were given permission to excavate and study the site. A wealth of data was produced about two very different occupations--- a family’s encampment and a specialized workshop.  Richard Boisvert, State Archeologist, will present the preliminary interpretations based on what was found.  Richard Boisvert received his BA from Beloit College and MA and Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky. He has conducted extensive field work and research, focusing much on Paleoindian topics.  He was appointed State Archaeologist in 2002 and is the current Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer.

 

This program will be in the Great Room of the Summit Lodge of Weeks State Park.  Come early and bring a picnic supper, or climb the Fire Tower for one of the best views north of the notches.
