Voices for the West: Enlightened by Dark Sky – Webinar
February 22 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join ICL and Advocates for the West for the next Voices for the West webinar to discuss the Central Idaho Dark Sky Reserve. The Reserve is a treasured resource for all Idahoans and visitors from across the world that come to experience the wonder of the starry night sky and is the result of a collective commitment by communities, public land managers, and private landowners to support the dark sky experience. Designated in 2017, the Reserve is the first International Dark Sky Reserve in the U.S. and only the twelfth Dark Sky Reserve worldwide.
The designation represents nearly two decades of planning efforts and policy decisions by city and county leaders, local businesses and organizations, and public land managers. Working together, these partners continue to focus on preserving the quality of the night-time environment and reducing the impact of light pollution in the area. We’re excited to be joined by the Idaho Conservation League’s (ICL) Central Idaho Director Betsy Mizell, ICL Board Member Matt Benjamin, and Idaho Dark Sky Alliance President Carol Cole. Voices for the West is a monthly webinar brought to you by Advocates for the West.
