Reach for the Stars!
SKY’S THE LIMIT is a grassroots all-volunteer organization.
You can help make the dream come true:
Join the Galaxy 72 Club of Investors, making a commitment to donate an amount you choose for 72 months. Whether paid by check, credit card, or online through PayPal, your donation of $10 or more per month not only provides the critical funding for construction and operation of SKY’S THE LIMIT facilities and programs, it also demonstrates the private support needed when we apply for grants.
Become an Investor!
Join the Constellation Club of Volunteers. If you have an interest, skill, or talent — or just wish to help the project grow — contact us, and one of our committee members will be able to answer your questions and guide you to an area where help is needed. Tasks range from relocating cactus plants and laying out nature trails, to planning and hosting “Star Party” fundraising events, to developing curricula in a variety of fields.

ONE OF SKY’S THE LIMIT’S NEWEST ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORTERS
After inspecting the Sky’s the Limit Observatory and Nature Center site, Charles Duvall and Jerry Mattos head to JTNP for a hike. Charles is owner of Duvall Dynamic Spaces in Rockland, Maine. The company builds and installs site-specific shade structures that are both sculptural and functional, transforming the environment — whether defining an entranceway, an outdoor restaurant, a public performance area, or a private retreat.
Charles has donated one of his fabric shade structures to Sky’s the Limit. The 25’ x 25’ structure will be installed adjacent to Phase I buildings, creating a sheltered gathering place for visitors preparing to participate in Nature Center activities.
Enthusiastic about the Observatory project and enchanted by the desert, Charles owns 5 acres in Twentynine Palms. He plans on arriving in October to build an environmentally friendly structure on his land, and to begin designing shade structures for sale in California.

Charles Duvall and his colleague (from Bremen, Germany) Nico Burmann installed the Deck Wing at the Phase I buildings.
