Starry, starry night.

The Crowley Museum and Nature Center, on 190 acres adjacent to the Myakka River, welcomes more than 7,000 visitors each year to nature trails, a boardwalk traversing Maple Branch Swamp, an observation tower and a pioneer cabin and museum. At night, you can also see the stars in startling clarity. At the annual Starry Night dinner-auction Saturday, March 19, partygoers will glimpse the first-quarter moon, rings of Saturn and more with the high-powered telescopes of the local chapter of Deep Sky Observers. With dinner by Paul Mattison and a silent auction (including a dolphin tour with Mote Marine) to benefit the center. Tickets $100 per person; call (941) 322-1000. 16405 Myakka Road, Myakka City.
