1 Star Party: National Astronomy Day Back-up date: October 2nd.
The first weekend in October is home to National Astronomy Day—celebrate and come and have a look at the skies! View the planets Uranus and Neptune through telescopes, plus the early winter star clusters such as the Pleiades, along with the king of the planets, Jupiter, rising in the east. $5 for members, $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

15 If These Trees Could Talk
Join Baltimore Woods Naturalist Tom Meier on a journey through time. The shape of the forests at Baltimore Woods is intimately tied to the lifestyles of all the people who came before. This hike will take an inspiring look at the history of the preserve and the ever changing relationships between people and the land, as told through the eyes of the colorful autumn trees. $5 for members, $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.

19 Volunteer Lunch
On the third Wednesday of the month Baltimore Woods offers our volunteers a lunch of locally harvested foods at the Interpretive Center. All our volunteers are welcome! Please call ahead to register.

22 Double Dog Dare Walk
Baltimore Woods dares you — no, double dog dares you, to walk through the woods with only the moon lighting your way! Search for creatures that go bump in the night and for treats hidden along the trails. Accommodates 10-25 participants. $5 for members; $15/family; $8 for nonmembers, $25/family.
