To prepare for the upcoming Bear Festival, this Friday there will not be an evening planetarium show. However, there will be fun for the whole family at the Los Alamos Nature Center Saturday, May 13, including New Mexico’s first Bear Festival, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a full-dome planetarium show at 2 p.m. of Mysteries of the Unseen World. This full-dome film, which allows viewers to discover what is normally too fast, too slow, too small, or outside the visible spectrum, also will play at 2 p.m. Sunday.
The Los Alamos Nature Center is open regular hours this month: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday as well as 1-4 p.m. Sunday. The nature center is open until 8 p.m. Tuesdays and closed Thursdays for regular maintenance. The nature center will be open 1-4 p.m. Mother’s Day, May 14, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Memorial Day, May 29.
