Day Volunteers at Prince Edward Point 

Other than the licence Bander in Charge, Station Manager, PEPtBO is run entirely by a group of enthusiastic and friendly volunteers.
We welcome anyone who shares the goals of PEPtBO and would like to help.  There is a place for you at the Observatory.  Please consider joining us!
