Explore the effects and dangers of urban light pollution, and get a view of the most incredible dark sky areas in North America. This night-sky program is being held in collaboration with the International Dark-Sky Association, a non-profit focused on preserving night skies around the globe. The program will be presented by Diane Knutson, a member of the Board of Directors of the IDA.
