Mayland Earth to Sky Park
- Non-Profit Organizations
The Observatory will be closed the months of January and February while we do some much needed road maintenance and telescope cleaning/maintenance. We look forward to reopening in March. Gift certificates are available for both community viewing nights and private rentals. For information on gift certificates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Earth to Sky Park is an environmental educational park for those interested in learning about the natural world we live in, from the earth to the sky.
In addition to star gazing at a certified International Dark Sky site at the Bare Dark Sky Observatory or learning about astronomy and other STEM related topics at the Glenn and Carol Arthur Planetarium, visitors to the ESP can enjoy everything else the Park has to offer.
