We participate in outreach to encourage others to be active in amateur observing. We have a portable telescope for use by members and encourage members to bring their own telescopes. If you want to join us in an outreach program it is essential to be a member for insurance purposes. If it is a family event you must have a valid Working with Children check.
In 2021 the following outreach is planned. Contact our Secretary to get involved, use your telescope or get help using your telescope:
