Celebrating 75 Years With McDonald Observatory

Gifts to the Annual Fund during the Observatory’s 75th anniversary celebration (2013-2014) will give operating funds to McDonald Observatory’s work in science education. Gifts support hands-on science lessons for students, teacher professional development workshops, Visitors Center programs, and our flagship StarDate Radio program, which reaches 2.1 million listeners a day.
