For one of his tours, he was the Lead Night Sky Astronomy Ranger at Organ Pipe Cactus Monument, AZ, where he gave nightly lectures and conducted star parties for up to 180 people. He has also been the featured speaker at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center for the last two years for their annual Star Extravaganza.
