“to provide immersive educational experiences for learners of all ages and anchor a vibrant intellectual community that makes strong and lasting contributions to national educational priorities.”

— Former Yerkes Education Mission Statement

On October 1, 2018, the University of Chicago ceased operations at Yerkes Observatory. They seek to transition the observatory to a new steward.

Until then, former Yerkes programs must continue providing their invaluable benefits, to the Geneva Lakes community.

GLAS carries on the mission of the former Yerkes Education Outreach, during this period of uncertainty and transition.
