Bringing Back Dark Skies: A Conversation about the Boulder Dark-Sky Ordinance

Have you seen the Milky Way lately? Most of us haven't—80% of Americans can no longer see the Milky Way from their homes. Join this discussion with the Sierra Club, the International Dark-Sky Association and Fiske Planetarium to learn why dark skies matter and how the newly implemented Boulder Outdoor Lighting Ordinance will help us save energy, protect wildlife, improve human health and reconnect with the cosmos. 

This presentation is free and open to the public.

Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 6:30 p.m. before the event.

If you joined us on April 9, this discussion will cover roughly the same content, but feel free to join us and continue the conversation.
