The quote above reflects our ever-growing concern of protecting dark skies so moonlight is something we all have an opportunity to enjoy. We are embracing an opportunity to protect our heritage and minimize light pollution, protect citizens from light encroachment and finally to protect the natural environment. Helper City is currently pursuing Dark-Sky Community certification through the International Dark-Sky Association. This effort is focused on protecting our dark sky environment from light pollution. Benefits of this effort include: supporting health and heritage, protecting wildlife habitat, saving money, and providing access to celestial discovery for astronomers – both professional and amateur.
