Next is a one-hour PowerPoint presentation in the classroom on the basics of astronomy. This will be followed by hands-on instruction at the dome using different types of telescopes and binoculars.

Next will be a tour of the night sky using binoculars (campers may bring their own) followed by observing through STL's large 14-inch Celestron telescope located in the observatory dome. Observing will last as long as anyone is interested.

Campers should bring a red flashlight*, a clipboard, water, and snacks. Dress for unpredictable desert weather. Participants will receive star charts for each month and a copy of Celestron's brochure, How to Buy Your First Telescope.

Cost is $50 per person per session.

Discovery Days field trips are offered by Sky's The Limit's amazing team of docents, led by Doris Lawless. Starting with an introduction to desert geology and weather conditions, the day features three main event stations:

1) The Orrery - a scale representation of the solar system
2) The Nature Trail - showcasing seasonal local botany and flora
3) Solar Telescope - safely view the sun with a special telescope

Activities last approximately 2 1/2 hours.

A $50 per bus transportation stipend is now available thanks to donations and a local grant. For more information, call Doris at 760-408-6099, or email doris.lawless@gmail.com.

 
SATURDAY DOCENT TOURS

The campus is always open and many of the educational exhibits provide self-guided tours via smart phone.

On Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm, a docent is on campus to welcome visitors and explain STL's educational offerings.

 
SATURDAY NIGHT STAR PARTIES

STL astronomers set up a variety of telescopes and welcome the public for free viewing sessions on Saturday nights when the moon is NOT full (the bright desert moon makes telescope viewing very unsatisfactory).

Guests are advised to arrive shortly after sundown in order to get oriented and enjoy other campus features (such as the Nature Trail, Meditation Garden, and Orrery) before the viewing session begins at dark.

Once the Star Party starts, the campus is intentionally kept very dark to maximize the viewing experience, so guests arriving later are asked to use parking lights as they approach and bring a red flashlight to preserve night vision.

Hi-Desert Cultural Center to Award $1,700 in Music Education Scholarships

The Hi-Desert Cultural Center's 15th Annual Scholarship Concerts & Recitals Program is now accepting applications from aspiring student musicians of all ages to participate in its unique program that is designed to provide both live performance experience and professional, adjudicated critique opportunities to student musicians - whether they be instrumentalists or vocalists.  The program also awards substantial music scholarships to the top school-aged competitors during the program's Finals held May 6, 2017 at 2:30 pm at the Hi-Desert Cultural Center.  
 
The program includes two performance options, one designed for students who simply want to perform as a recitalist for experience and the other for those musicians who also want to compete for the scholarship funding.  Hundreds of students have successfully participated in the program, which has awarded over $35,000 in music education scholarships and is funded through private donations, Joshua Tree Philharmonic concert ticket sales, and recital ticket sales.  This year $1,700 will be awarded to student musicians who participate in the multi-part scholarship portion of the program: $1,000 First Place Award, $500 Second Place Award, and $200 Third Place Award.
 
Prior to the final public recitals, participants are coached on performance and stage etiquette, mic technique, and, for those competing for a scholarship, their music portfolio creation.  The breadth of the process creates the area's best opportunity for aspiring student musicians to gain performance experience in front of a live audience and gain a better understanding of the adjudication process that they may experience when applying for college or a professional career opportunity.  While students must be in grades 1-12 to be eligible to participate in the scholarship portion of the program, students of all ages are encouraged to participate as recitalists because the rigor of pubic performance helps each participant to grow - musically and personally - by requiring them to set well-defined goals, implement a plan to achieve those goals, successfully execute those goals, and follow through with the goals to completion.  With their new experience and, in some cases, scholarship awards, participants continue to grow and invest in their skills.  Some past winners have gone on to win top-tier international music competitions, placed second on CBS Star Search, and gone on to obtain college music scholarships.
 
The deadline for submission of a complete entry is April 7, 2017.  All entries are to be completed online.  Full details, requirements, and other important deadlines are available online at www.hidesertculturalcenter.org/scr.  Tickets may be purchased online, by calling the Box Office at 760.366.3777, or at the Box Office Monday-Friday from 1-5 pm.  The Hi-Desert Cultural Center is located at 61231 Hwy 62 in Joshua Tree, CA 92252.

LEGACY BRICKS" AVAILABLE IN THEATRE 29 SERENITY PATIO
 
Theatre 29 continues to work on their Serenity Patio under construction just the East of the theater building at 73637 Sullivan Road at Adobe Road in the City of Twentynine Palms. The patio area includes a stunning giant sculpture, reminiscent of the iconic Comedy and Drama masks, a beautiful garden, seating area, and a wall partially full of "Legacy Bricks".
 
The customized legacy bricks are being made available as a fund-raiser for the all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 Community Theatre organization. The funds will be used to support productions and maintenance for the Morongo Basin's Flagship all-volunteer venue.
 
Theatre 29 produces a year-round line-up of Broadway Musicals, Dramas and Comedies at their Twentynine Palms location. In addition, they supply significant resources and support for the St. Joseph's Players in Yucca Valley and the Grove's Theatre in Morongo Valley.
 
Theatre-goers are enjoying the peaceful seating area before, after, and during intermission of productions at the Theatre. The sculpture was donated by world-renowned artist Simi Dabah, it is on a large concrete pedestal just North of a decorative wall which is being gradually tiled with legacy bricks.
 
These bricks-custom engraved for the donor-can be sponsored by volunteers, community members, and businesses who wish to leave a mark on this community treasure. Next time you are at Theatre 29, check out the display of tiles already on display, some in remembrance of a loved one, others marking a business support of Theatre 29, others honoring directors and performers, marking remarkable productions, and some tiles with whimsical messages just for fun.
 
There are two sizes, 4×8 for an $85 donation, or 8×8 for $150. The funds raised through the legacy brick project will also be used to support ongoing improvement to the Theatre 29 facility.
