Program Description

Event Details

We use lights in all different ways at night to be able to live and work, but it has come at a price. When used extensively, without thinking or planning, outdoor lighting can disrupt wildlife, impact human health, waste money and energy, contribute to climate change, and block our view of the universe. Smart lighting that directs light where it is needed creates a balance between safety and starlight.

Together with the Frankfort Audubon Society, middle school science teacher Rachael Peake and students from area schools will present these ideas, provide an update about dark sky initiatives, and show how Frankfort can plan to become a partner in keeping our sky dark.
