Fantastic Fridays

every Friday


Join Alabaster Caverns State Park for one of these fun, free Fantastic Friday events.

Tour of the Alabaster Sky: July 3 & September 4
This astronomy-based program begins at Alabaster Caverns’ Clubhouse Shelter at 9:00pm, weather permitting. Participants will have the opportunity to see and identify many constellations of the spring and summer sky, find out how they were given their names and take a look through a telescope at some far-away astronomical bodies you may have only heard about. This program is for those of any age and is free to the public. Because of the nature of this program, cancellation due to weather conditions and/or cloud cover is a possibility. Please call the park office for updated cancellation information.

Furry Flying Friends of Alabaster Caverns: May 29, June 19 & August 21
Alabaster Caverns is home to literally thousands of those furry little flyers we call bats. Over the years, bats have been thought of as dirty, blood-sucking 'mice-with-wings' by many people. Take this opportunity to learn what bats are really like, how they affect our everyday lives and just what us humans can do to help them out. Have your questions ready, we’d love to answer them for you. This program begins at 7pm at the Wilson Amphitheater. It is appropriate for any age and is free to the public. Come and have a 'batty good time.'

S is for Snake: May 22, June 12 & August 14
We’ve all heard it, 'The only good snake is a dead snake' or 'Every snake is a rattlesnake to me.' Well, maybe the staff at Alabaster Caverns can change your mind. See just a few examples of how our little —creepy-crawly” friends make our life a little better. Bring your questions and comments and spend a little time getting to really —know” what a snake is all about. This program begins at 7pm at the Wilson Amphitheater, is appropriate for any age and is free to the public. Notice: This program could include live snakes; but don't worry, they don't eat much!

It’s a Bird; It’s a Plane...No, it’s an Owl: June 5, June 26 & August 28
Silently patrolling the night skies, these winged creatures eliminate many of those little things that go bump in the night. No mouse, amphibian, reptile or insect is safe from the watchful eyes of an owl. Super hearing and super eyesight are just a few things that make these birds of prey so interesting. Take a few minutes out of your evening, bring the family and learn a little about the 'wise old owls' that live around us. This program begins at 7pm at the Wilson Amphitheater, is appropriate for any age and is free to the public. When the evening concludes, you too will be able to tell 'was that an owl?'

Note: No Fantastic Friday programs will be held July 10 through August 7.
