Midland Reporter - - News -

COM­MU­NITY mem­bers in­ter­ested in sci­ence, astronomy, space ex­plo­ration and its his­tory are be­ing in­vited to be­come vol­un­teers at the Perth Ob­ser­va­tory in Bick­ley.

The Perth Ob­ser­va­tory Vol­un­teer Group op­er­ates the ob­ser­va­tory in a com­mu­nity part­ner­ship with the state, with vol­un­teers run­ning day and night sky tours for peo­ple of all ages.

Astronomy tours are held at night, mostly on week­ends, but the group is seek­ing en­thu­si­as­tic vol­un­teers who are avail­able on week­days to con­duct school tours.

Vol­un­teers will need to com­mit to six hours a month of train­ing and men­tor­ship to learn how to be a day tour pre­sen­ter, a night tour tele­scope op­er­a­tor or his­tory re­searcher.
