Please note that we have put together some resources to make it easier for you to prepare a public comment in support of full NSF funding for the Green Bank Observatory, and this information is available on the Get Organized page. The public comment period is open from November 8, 2017 through January 8, 2018. Also, there is a public hearing scheduled at the Green Bank Observatory Science Center on November 30th, 2017, from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm where you can directly voice your support for the Observatory to the NSF.
