Did you know that Northwest Park has a portable planetarium that is used for educational programs? This is a domed structure that students can actually sit in to have a dark environment and watch images of space projected up over the heads.

But the current planetarium they use is getting old and outdated. The Friends of Northwest Park is sponsoring a special fundraiser just to help raise money to buy the Park a brand new planetarium! Please consider supporting this effort.

From our website: https://northwestpark.org/looktothestars/

NWP is in great need of a new portable planetarium. Hundreds of school children each year are introduced to the wonders of our night’s sky through this resource. After many years of service, the hardware is on it’s last legs, the model has been discontinued, and service parts are no longer available.

This is why we’re here! it’s time for us to step into action and raise the funds to keep this crucial program running.

What can you do to help? Easy. 2 simple things. Donate and Share! Give what you can below, and then share this page or use the share links that follow your contribution to share with as many people as you can to get the word out.

The goal is big, but we can do this.
You can donate through Facebook or directly on the Friends of Northwest Park website (above).
