Saturdays are for Stargazing

Heading to Yosemite this fall? Add a Yosemite Conservancy stargazing program to your itinerary! Every Saturday in October, our knowledgeable naturalists will help you experience the magic of the park’s night skies during a 60-minute meetup starting at 6:30 PM in Yosemite Valley.

  • Who: Visitors of all ages are welcome for this family-friendly program!
  • What: Enjoy dazzling views of the night sky and learn about stars and planets with a naturalist guide.
  • When: 6:30 – 7:30 pm, every Saturday in October.
  • Where: Meet at the Lower Yosemite Fall shuttle stop, #6.
  • Hiking: Up to 1 mile on flat terrain, in low light.
  • Registration fee: $25/person


*The day pass included with your registration gets you into Yosemite on the date of the stargazing program. The pass is valid for one day only. If you’re planning a multiday visit, please use the Yosemite National Park reservation system.

Stay tuned for additional Saturday evening programs with our naturalists through the month of November — details coming soon! Looking for an even more in-depth Yosemite experience? Check out our naturalist-led Outdoor Adventures and Custom Adventures.
