One of the primary endeavors of the Baton Rouge Astronomical Society (BRAS) is community outreach. Specifically, helping to engage and educate our community about astronomy and the wonders of the cosmos via observing sessions through telescopes, physical science demos and media presentations.

BRAS would be happy to be a part of your event/activity and you can reach us with your request at:

When making a request, please include the following information:

  1. Date of the event
  2. Location of the event
  3. Start and End time of the event

After submitting your request, you will receive a reply that includes any guidelines and rules that we have regarding our participation. If we are able to sign up volunteers, our participation is always FREE of charge.
