Continuing on the theme of projects that mix art and science in creative ways the past two projects both had wonderful turnouts, and both included ideas of our experience as urbanites in the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area. On August 3rd we had our first ever evening lantern project where participants were given materials to create a durable DIY lantern using LED, there was also a talk about UV lighting and an attempt to do an evening insect study although it was too chilly in the mountain for the insects. The lantern project was the first evening project and it was wonderful to see the night sky from the Hilltop Campground.
