Outreach event
United States
Grand Canyon National Park

GCSP 2014 is the 24th annual collaboration between the National Park Service and astronomers from around North America to bring astronomy outreach to Park visitors. The event is held concurrently on both the North Rim, coordinated by the Saguaro Astronomy Club, and the South Rim, coordinated by Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association. Astronomers act as interpretive rangers, unveiling the day and night cosmos around the Grand Canyon to the visitors just as the Park Rangers and guides explain the geology of the park. There is no charge or reservations required for park visitors. Volunteer astronomers must sign up in advance with their Rim coordinator, are responsible for arranging their own lodging, and will register as official National Park Service Volunteers on site. Lodging options and other information are available from the official web sites.
