Virginia Living Museum's Naturally Speaking Presents Lighting Matters: An Introduction to Light Pollution and Night Sky/Nightscape Conservation with Laura Greenleaf
Artificial light at night is essential to our lives, communities, and society. But the routine indiscriminate use of too much badly-designed lighting degrades ecosystems, imperils wildlife, and fails to deliver on promises of improved safety and security while also eroding our own health. What do we lose when we obliterate the stars from the night sky and darkness below it? This presentation will explore the causes and consequences of light pollution, explain the basics of responsible outdoor lighting, deliver good news about nightscape conservation, and equip the audience to bring back the night beginning at home. Because every day needs a night.
