Utah’s Parks: The Jewels of Our Dark Sky Crown

Presented by: National Parks Conservation Association and Utah State Parks

Science & Land and Night Sky



Utah leads the world in designated dark sky places, and our state and national parks form the foundational footprint of dark sky protection.  Learn more about the meteoric rise of dark sky programming and protection in Utah parks from Shelby Stock (Utah State Parks) and Cassidy Jones (National Parks Conservation Association). Our speakers will share their view of the key ingredients for dark sky success in Utah and highlight the importance of continued advocacy from International Dark Sky Association (IDA) members and supporters to keep Utah skies dark.
