I am an amateur astronomer and part of a small team that was successful in receiving a recent dark sky designation for the Slumgullion Dark Sky Park, a parcel of land near Lake City which belongs to the Lake Fork Valley Conservancy. With this good news, we are already making plans for astronomy/stargazing programs in 2021 (assuming things settle down with the pandemic by then).
We will strive to do our part to be good stewards for preserving dark skies, and actively promote ways to prevent light pollution with people living and visiting Colorado.
We are deeply appreciative of so many of helping us out these last few years. We are but a few volunteers so we will continue to need all the help we can receive.
