POSTPONED: 2020 Statewide Star Party

April 25, 2020 @ 8:30 PM – 10:30 PM
Bailey and Sarah Williamson Preserve
Dymond Generette

In light of the latest guidelines from the CDC about COVID-19 and postponing gatherings of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, TLC has postponed the Grand Opening of Bailey and Sarah Williamson Preserve, as well as the Star Party, which were scheduled for April 25.

We also realized that after making the difficult decision to postpone our March and early April volunteer workdays, it would be more difficult for us to prepare the preserve for its opening day. Our amazing volunteers are an integral part of the Grand Opening of Williamson Preserve (and all our work!) helping to build trails, clear debris, and finish all the other tasks needed to prepare the preserve for its opening day. It’s never been more clear that we can’t do our work without our loyal and hardworking volunteers.

We will be rescheduling the celebration and will be in touch with a new date in the coming weeks. While it was a difficult to decision to make, we look forward to gathering together at a future date, and we know that thanks to our community’s support, we will continue to do what we can to prepare the preserve for its future opening day.

Join Triangle Land Conservancy from 8:30-10:30pm at the Bailey and Sarah Williamson Preserve after our Grand Opening on April 25, 2020 for the 2020 Statewide Star Party! Our 405-acre preserve is located away from the city light pollution to allow you to see the night sky through telescopes compliments of the Raleigh Astronomy Club! Come learn about the constellations, ask astronomy questions, and enjoy hands-on activities from the Star Party kit perfect for all ages! The address will be provided via confirmation email. 

The Statewide Star Party is made possible by grant support from N.C. Space Grant.
