Participants can come to the historic house in Lewinsville Park in McLean on Nov. 12 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. to learn about the importance of dark skies in the community.

The event will have hands-on activities and educational opportunities about how to protect the night sky, plus the opportunity to learn about nighttime wildlife and constellations and enjoy a small campfire and cocoa.
