Earth To Sky Logo

The Earth to Sky Park is an environmental educational park for those interested in learning about the natural world we live in, from the earth to the sky. The Park is open to the public and there is 24-hour access to the parking area for stargazing.

Coming Soon!

The Children’s Discovery Center will provide hands-on STEM activities geared for children in K-12. Housed in two buildings connected by a breezeway, the Center will have rotating exhibits that teach about astronomy, environmental science, robotics, and engineering. A classroom inside the Center will be available for reservations. Naming opportunities are available!
