Educational Outreach
The Lowcountry Stargazers is a non-profit 501(c) organization, established to further the education of our members and the general public in the field of astronomy. In addition to member-only club activities, we have an active outreach program that seeks to increase public awareness of astronomy and bring the joys of the night sky to all with an interest.

Members of the Lowcountry Stargazers share a common interest in astronomy. Most are involved in school, scout and other public outreach efforts. Members own a wide variety of equipment and are active in providing programs to school and community groups. Arrangements can be made for members to bring telescopes for discussions or observing.  For more info, please contact Cale Shipman.  The Educational Outreach Form is here.

[Note: Programs are provided based on the availability of our members. We are only able to offer a limited number each year, but will do our best to accommodate all requests.]
