The Canadian Ecology Centre has received a $30,000 telescope from the astronomy club in North Bay. The telescope will be housed in an observatory the ecology centre is trying to build. So far the centre has 85 percent of the funds needed to construct the 12 by 18 foot facility. The organization is holding two events to raise the rest of the money. One is a night out with the stars May 2nd and a draw for a signed copy of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s book, “An Astronaut’s Guide to Life”.
