Night Sky Navigation Workshop

Workshop/Training


Join us for an introductory workshop in night sky navigation! Paul Ricketts, Director of the University of Utah's Observatory, will guide us in learning to use star maps to locate objects in a telescope. We will have 5 telescopes available so everyone has the opportunity to gain hands-on experience.

Note - Our previous 3 attempts at holding this event have been cancelled due to cloud cover! We hope that spring will bring clearer skies, but please check your email the afternoon of the event in case we have to cancel and refund you.

Be sure to register to ensure your spot!

Saving the Monarchy: One Milkweed at a Time

Lecture/Readings | Gardening

Monarch butterfly populations in the west are at an all-time low. Join us as we discuss the symbiotic relationship between Monarchs and Milkweed and learn how we can help the threatened monarch butterfly population survive and reproduce.

Guests will learn from local community scientist, Rachel Taylor, how to propagate and grow drought-tolerant, native milkweed to attract monarch butterflies back to the community.

(Milkweed seedlings supplies are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.)
