light-pollution-quote-21In 2008, SFCT created our Dark Skies program, educating the community about the importance of the connection between land and sky conservation and the Six Easy Steps to Bring Back the Stars. We are also working on language to add the requirement of compliance with the Night Sky Protection Act in our Conservation Easements.  Hundreds of people in the community have participated in our educational Star Party events; done in collaboration with the Capital City Astronomy Club, Santa Fe Garden Club, Santa Fe Southern Railway Salazar Elementary and Commonweal Conservancy, celebrating land conservation in the New Mexico and the importance of Dark Skies for future generations.
