Evening star party

Loon Echo Land Trust invites you to a relaxing Saturday, Aug. 12, evening under the summer sky, and if conditions allow, shooting stars, at Hacker’s Hill Preserve in Casco. The  The Perseids Meteor Shower is always a favorite due to the warm summer temperatures. At its peak, this shower seems to originate from the constellation Perseus, giving rise to the name Perseids.

The event will be held from 9 p.m. to midnight. Make sure to bring a comfortable chair, bug spray, drinks and snacks. Park in the “Event Parking” area to the right of the summit. Rain date is Sunday, Aug. 13.
