Astronomy Training

Free Online Astronomy Workshops for Interpreters from Parks & Nature Centers

Does your park or nature center have dark star-filled skies? Are your visitors excited about astronomy, but you need a confidence boost in order to interpret the sky for them? Want to be able to find more in the sky than just the Big Dipper and Orion? Join our upcoming Sky Rangers online workshop so we can enable you to share the night sky as another important natural resource of your park.

Applications are now being accepted for the upcoming Sky Rangers Workshop from the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, taking place January 17 - March 11, 2011. This free online workshop provides materials and training for interpreters and outdoor educators who want to learn how to tell the story of the sky and bring the excitement of astronomy to their audiences.

Apply online by December 1. Find more information and the application on this page: http://www.afguonline.org/mod/resource/view.php?id=1857
