Reading Ranger children’s story time on July 30

Park rangers from the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will read children’s books about the night sky on Saturday, July 30, at the McCreary County Public Library. Story time will begin at 10:30 a.m. followed by an arts and crafts project. Dark skies are essential natural, scientific, cultural, and economic resources. National parks are home to some of the last remaining dark skies in the country. The Big South Fork NRRA is committed to protecting the night sky by inspiring the next generation to appreciate the stars as a cherished resource and become stewards.

The park hosts night sky programs through the summer with its partners from the University of Tennessee. For more information about these programs, go to
