Nanaimo Dark Skies Project
The Nanaimo Astronomy Society is concerned about local light pollution. Not only because it destroys our view of the night sky and disconnects us from the universe, but also for it's high monetary and environmental cost and impact on the health of people, animals and the local ecology.
Our society is starting a Dark Skies Project here in Nanaimo to work to:
To do this we need people to:
- increase awareness of light pollution and its effects
- reduce light pollution in and near Nanaimo
- create a designated "Dark Sky Park" within the city
You don't need to be a member of the Nanaimo Astronomy Society to volunteer for our Dark Skies Steering Committee or activities. We are also keen to partner with other groups concerned about the environment.
- volunteer to serve on our Dark Skies Steering Committee
- volunteer to help us with light pollution awareness activities
To volunteer, contact us by calling Garland at 250-740-0472 or by sending me a private message here. Any questions you have about light pollution or dark skies are welcome.
