NEW – 4-H Astronomy Night

The UW-Extension office is excited to offer a brand new event in collaboration with the La Crosse Astronomical Society…Astronomy Night! The first ever 4-H Astronomy Night will take place on Monday, May 21st from 8:30-11:30 p.m. at the G-E-T Observatory in Galesville, WI. This event is open to 4-H members age 12 and older, and is completely FREE! Transportation will be provided to and from the Observatory at a TBD, central and public location. Check out the La Crosse Area Astronomical Society (LCAAS) website for more info!

We are aware that this is a school night, and it’s a late one at that. It’s difficult to schedule star-gazing activities dependent on celestial bodies and weather. But there will be future opportunities for younger youth to participate in related programming. Visit the Events & Activities page for more things you can do with your family this summer!

Registration is limited and is due to the UW-Extension office by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15th.
