You can be a star with the Planetary Studies Foundation!
Our membership is composed of citizens of our community, educators, and scientists — all of whom want to foster scientific literacy, to broaden our wealth of knowledge, and especially to encourage children's interest in the sciences. In recognition of this valuable support, the Planetary Studies Foundation offers a variety of benefits to our members, including:
PSF NEWSLETTER; A quarterly publication that keeps members informed of activities, special events, and science news.
PSF eNews; A monthly electronic newsletter that supplements the quarterly PSF newsletter.
Invitations to sky observing events.
Free admission to guest lecture series and book signings. In the past years we have hosted a lecture by NASA scientist and microbiology expert, Richard Hoover, a book signing with Apollo 8 Astronaut Walter Cunningham, and a talk by scientist, Mars expert, and author, William Hartmann.
Free admission to the historical 1876 Banwarth House & Museum and workshop series.
