Support the SkyCenter

Why support the SkyCenter?

The Mount Lemmon SkyCenter strives to further lifelong learning and inspire both youth and adults to consider their place in the world in which they live.  The SkyCenter depends on revenue from programs as well as the generosity of donors.  

The SkyCenter provides superior opportunities for students, educators, researchers, and staff to interact with nature and history by day and explore the world above by night.  It is envisioned that further enhancements to site connectivity, programmed open space, classroom and research facilities will transform the site, allowing for world-class experiences to take place at the SkyCenter.
