National Park Service

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Ninety Six National Historic Site is in the infant stages of hosting night sky programs. With large areas of open field there are some excellent viewing opportunities. Although the park’s main themes are its location as a colonial settlement and two Revolutionary War Battles, the staff has been expanding programming exploring the park’s natural resources as well. The night sky at Ninety Six can not only connect visitors to the universe beyond but to their history as well.

The park is seeking qualified volunteers to join us as we explore the night sky. If you would like to be a part of a public astronomy program and share the splendors of the sky with the general public, consider applying and sending your resume. The ideal applicant is communicative, self-motivated, knowledgeable, approachable, and a good public speaker. Volunteers are expected to support the NPS mission. The job may require working with crowds and a diverse public in both independent and team modes.
