Volunteer this Saturday (09/15) from 9am-12pm to collect and document trash on our coastlines and in our inland parks. International Coastal Cleanup started 30 years ago and continues to this day. Beyond picking up trash, volunteers are asked to record items collected on a data card to help identify ways to minimize littering and pollution in the future. On this day, more than 100 countries will be participating.

For all of these events, you must RSVP and sign a waiver using the California Coastal Commission’s website: https://www.coastal.ca.gov/publiced/ccd/ccd.html

James Webb Space Telescope Tour – 11/04

James WebbA very exciting opportunity has come up for us to take a tour of the facility where they are currently working on the James Webb Space Telescope (Northrup Grumman in Redondo Beach). If you haven’t heard of this before, here is a short blurb about it from their website:

“The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) will be a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror.  The telescope will be launched from French Guiana in Spring 2019. JWST will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System. JWST will be a powerful time machine with infrared vision that will peer back over 13.5 billion years to see the first stars and galaxies forming out of the darkness of the early universe.”

Tour Details
The tour is free! However, you must be a US citizen to tour this facility and will be required to show a valid government ID (such as a driver’s license or passport). We will carpool from Fullerton College around 8am and the tour will be 9-10am. We can provide transportation so please let us know if you need a ride.

Sign up here!

We look forward to seeing you!
