The Bays Mountain Astronomy Club is hosting free observing sessions!

SunWatch will start on the first weekend of March and be held each clear Sat. & Sun., 3-3:30 p.m. These free viewings will be held at the dam with a telescope that provides an exceptional (and safe) view of the Sun.

Our free, evening stargaze is called StarWatch. It is held every Saturday night of March & April starting at dusk. We’ll use large telescopes to view many wonderful celestial objects like: Planets, Star Clusters, the Moon, Nebulae, Galaxies, and much more! If the weather is poor, we’ll be in the planetarium theater inside instead with a live tour of the night sky.

Please use this link to find out more.

Bumblebees are becoming scarce, but in order to help them, scientists need to know more about where they live.  If you see a Bumble Bee snap a photo of it, then visit bumblebeewatch.org and create a free account. Upload your video and click the map to log your bee sighting; the website will ask you questions to help identify your bee. The information you provide will help scientists in the Xerces Society, study the bee decline and enable them to better target areas for conservation efforts.
