Dark Sky Planning along the Wasatch Front
September 10, 2021 10:10 am

Utah has become the leader of dark-sky tourism in the world and many national and state parks have been certified “dark sky” parks, including two rural communities. However, continued urban growth will increasingly threaten Utah’s remote places' ability to retain their dark skies despite their steward’s best efforts. This session will explore strategies that urban communities can engage in to limit the expansion of light pollution and skyglow from the Wasatch Front.
