As part of the week long celebration, a special lecture is scheduled in the nature center at Potawatomi Wildlife Park on Friday, April 20th, at 7:30 PM. The park director will present a program entitled “The Planet That Never Sleeps- an illuminating look at light pollution.”
The program will define what light pollution is and explore why it is harmful. Areas of exploration will include energy costs, effects on nature, health effects on humans, safety, and crime.
The program will also include a presentation on examples of good and bad lighting and end with how Dark-Sky Preserves like Potawatomi Wildlife Park are preserving our night skies.
Pending clear skies, those in attendance can stay after the program to see live examples of light pollution and enjoy the dark skies of Potawatomi Wildlife Park, Indiana’s First Dark-Sky Preserve.
Potawatomi Wildlife Park is located at 16998 State Rd 331, Tippecanoe Indiana. Come Get Into Nature at Potawatomi Wildlife Park where every day is a celebration of Earth Day.
