A little bit of rain couldn’t dampen our celebration of WMBD on May 19, 2019!
In fact, this was our best-attended and most successful WMBD celebration to date,
with 200+ visitors and more than $9,000 raised to support
the critical monitoring, research and educational initiatives of the Observatory.
Thanks to you!
