Event Details


A Wild Night on Ossabaw: Tues. December 31, 2013 – Wed. January 1, 2014

Ring in the New Year with a “Wild Night on Ossabaw.” in the Club House
Ossabaw Island’s beach and night sky will come alive Tues. December 31  – Wed. January 1, during an on-island overnight educational journey. Arrive on Ossabaw Island on Tuesday. After settling into your quarters, naturalist John Crawford will lead an interpretive driving tour across the island to the beach. For those who prefer, the afternoon may be spent relaxing at the Clubhouse or exploring the island’s North End on their own. Following dinner, experience the universe and beyond as astronomer Laura Lawton leads a sky watching program on Ossabaw’s North End.  Learn how to identify constellations, and hear the legends associated with them. Marvel at the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, and peer through an eight-inch reflecting telescope to see the moons of Jupiter. Then, enjoy more legends (others’ or your own!) around a nighttime campfire. You’ll return to the mainland on Wednesday after breakfast.
Fees include round trip transportation from Delegal Marina on Skidaway Island to Ossabaw Island’s North End; meals, and champagne toast at midnight, comfortable dormitory-style overnight accommodations in the Clubhouse or semi private rooms in the Boarding House on Ossabaw Island, plus the nature and astronomy programs.
