Public Outreach

The RRAS is happy to provide education and outreach events for the benefit of the general public. The RRAS outreach program is sustained by dedicated volunteers, who contribute time and expertise in sharing their knowledge and passion for astronomy.  If you would like the RRAS to join in your event, please fill out the form linked below.  We require at least a four-week notice for outreach (six weeks preferred).
