Scheduling a Special Event

The Community Observatory can be scheduled Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings for educational special events.

When scheduling an educational special event, you must provide:

  • Contact information for the person that will be responsible to contact the group in the event of a weather closure,
  • The number of students/adults planning to attend, and
  • The curriculum/program topics of interest to the group.

On evenings during the week, normal parking regulations and fees apply.  Please have your drivers purchase a parking pass from the vending machine located in the parking lot.
