Fire Emergency: The list of immediate needs is growing and our priorities may need to evolve with circumstances. Your gift to the UCO Director’s Discretionary Fund today will provide the flexible support necessary for Director Max to address needs as they arise in this rapidly changing situation.

The Lick Observatory Volunteers are a dedicated collection of people interested in astronomy and eager to share their enthusiasm for Lick Observatory and the skies above.

Volunteers assist with events, such as our Music of the Spheres and Evening with the Stars programs, sharing their telescopes with the public, cataloging items in the archives, etc.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our Public Programs Volunteer Coordinator at
