Dark Sky Celebration and Reception

November 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We are very excited to inform you that Wasatch Mountain, Jordanelle and Deer Creek State Parks are closing in on the final requirements of applying for International Dark Sky Park Certification from the International Dark Sky Association.
Part of the requirements is to host an open house to provide educational resources to community members.
You are invited to a Dark Sky Celebration/Reception on Friday November 17, 2017 from 6-8 pm at Wasatch Mountain State Park visitor center (1281 Warm Springs Rd, Midway). Please RSVP to kathydonnell@utah.gov
We hope you will find this event educational and beneficial as the 3 parks are coming together to host 1 event. During the presentation we will explore why it is important and healthy for us to be able to see the stars at night, find out why stars are disappearing and what we are doing to preserve our dark skies in the valley.
After the presentation stick around to enjoy celestial refreshments, a chance to win a Bushnell Voyager telescope ($150 value) and stargaze with the Salt Lake Astronomical Society.
