Overview

"Conservation on an Astronomical Scale" Join Doug Arion, Executive Director of Mountains of Stars, for a discussion of Light Pollution: how it compromises our ability to observe Space from the surface of the earth, its surprisingly widespread effects, its impacts on people and the environment, and how we can fix the problem and save money at the same time. This presentation will also describe the effort we are conducting with the AMC to create an International Dark Sky Park and Reserve surrounding the AMC lands in the Maine Woods -- which will preserve 100,00 acres of the last dark sky area in the eastern 2/3 of the US! Information on upcoming outdoor events, conservation news and trail maintenance will be available. Everyone is welcome. Contact coordinator with any questions.
