A large portion of the support needed to operate the Nature Center and Observatory comes from the generous support of our members. A membership at SNCO also has the benefit of free or discounted admission to over 300 Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) including over eight in Oregon alone.
- SNCO is an affiliate of ASTC, Association of Science - Technology Centers.
- SNCO members can visit other ASTC facilities for free or at a discount.
Go to http://www.ASTC.org. Click on ASTC Passport Program where you can search for participating science centers and museums.* *Please note that an ASTC membership from a participating organization other than SNCO will NOT let you into the Observatory Programs for free. ASTC membership is only for the Nature Center. Starting in late June of 2017, Monday evenings will be an exclusive members only night at the Oregon Observatory, avoid the large summer crowds for a relaxed night of viewing!
