We are always in the need of docents to share their love of astronomy with the public. We provide new volunteer training, as well as training on operating our three large telescopes. Volunteer work can vary depending on interest and skills, but can include assisting the public visiting the observatory, giving lectures, and observing with small or large telescopes.
