The Frosty Drew Observatory at Ninigret Park has been awarded a $107,541 grant from the Champlin Foundation to purchase a new telescope.
The Champlin Foundation is a wonderful Rhode Island foundation providing support for hundreds of non-profits in the state. This grant will allow Frosty Drew to replace a 21-year old telescope, creaking with age, with a new PlaneWave CDK 24 telescope.
