Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument frequently partners with the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society

Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, tasked with ongoing research and education, frequently partners with the Colorado Springs Astronomical Society, a local outreach group that regularly hosts Dark Sky Parties where people can learn about the stars and look through telescopes at Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument.

West of Colorado Springs, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument displays fossils that tell a mind-bending story of the region in prehistoric times. Also, the park displays the timeless night sky perhaps like you've never seen it. Gaze with experts during a special program set for 8:30 p.m. June 18. — Seth Boster, The Gazette
