Have you noticed that the night sky looks different in urban versus rural areas? Do you miss seeing starry skies in your city? Join the Consortium for Dark Sky Studies and Dark Sky SLC for a Jane Jacobs Walk exploring the effects of lighting design in our cities and how you can help bring back the stars in your own neighborhood. We will walk downtown and learn about the types of lighting that contribute to dark sky conservation. Throughout this walking conversation, we’ll examine how lighting design effects urban ecosystems; including animals, public health and safety, public policy, ecological conservation, education and outreach.
