TOGETHER IN SUPPORT OF SCIENCE
As we all continue to adapt, we are grateful for your unwavering dedication to our work in mountain forecasting, climate data, and educational programs.
Because of you, scientists keep watch at our weather station every hour of every day, no matter the harsh conditions, adding to a climate record of nearly 90 years. Our team remains vigilant, closely evaluating procedures, ensuring more sustainable practices and strategically planning for the future – all to make certain that the work we do from the highest peak in the Northeast stays at the forefront of weather and climate sciences.

Your contributions to Mount Washington Observatory demonstrate your belief in the value and importance of our work.
Your donations make an impact. Impact like reporting 8,670 weather observations each year to the National Weather Service for nationwide forecasting models. Creating and presenting 40 free virtual programs watched by nearly 1,000 middle school classrooms, students, and anyone interested in weather, Earth’s climate system, and climate change. 1,460 specialized forecasts produced, reviewed, and published on our website every year to help people make educated decisions when recreating outdoors and especially on the higher summits. Our staff completed original and collaborative research projects that looked at visibility from the summit, new climate normalcy, and anemometer resilience under extreme weather conditions for the Federal Aviation Administration.
All made possible because of you.
The longevity and resolve of the Observatory’s donors are exceptional. You trust us to make a difference with your donation. To honor all who support our mission, we are changing how we define “membership” to a more inclusive donation-based membership model. Any donation amount makes you a member of the Observatory’s unique community, including a donation you make today.
Your confidence in our work inspires the commitment of our dedicated staff. With your help, we will continue our important work into 2022, when we celebrate our 90th year.
