EAS partners with East Bay schools, libraries, Scouting groups, and S.T.E.M. organizers for evening star parties and other Outreach events.  Our experienced astronomy volunteers bring out telescopes and other equipment, sharing close-up views of the moon, planets, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies.  We seek to provide a unique and inspiring experience of the night sky!

If you’re an EAS member who would like to get involved, contact Raymond Howard at outreach@eastbayastro.org to be added to the Outreach Volunteer list.  No obligation to participate, and no equipment needed.  Already on the list?  Stay tuned for requests!
