The Worthy Hopservatory
The Worthy Hopservatory is now open, and we've got plenty of programs scheduled throughout the coming months to quell your curiosity. We've partnered with the Oregon Observatory at Sunriver to offer weekly tours that will include seasonally appropriate educational programs and a peek through the Worthy telescope. Our goal is to raise scientific literacy and educate our visitors about big and unwieldy concepts like scale, size, time, distance, and speed in our solar system and beyond. In the event of a cloudy night, we'll offer "cloudchecks" redeemable for a better viewing night (Sorry, no refunds!). We strongly advise reserving your spot beforehand as we are limited to 20 people per tour. You can register for a Wednesday or Sunday tour 9-10pm on the Worthy Garden Club website, or enjoy open viewing Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9-11pm by signing up at the host stand. Let’s tour the Galactic Garden! See programs and prices to the right.
Limit 20 people.
