The Friends of Lick Observatory (FoLO) support Lick Observatory through community outreach and fundraising.

FoLO also offers members many opportunities to participate in the Lick community and enjoy special connections with the telescopes, scientists, and science programs. Since its inception in 2012, more than 450 people have joined FoLO from California and 22 other states.

Our FoLO volunteers are active in the Bay Area community and beyond to educate others on Lick Observatory and astronomy.
