We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to preserve dark skies for future generations. Our foundation is run by passionate, highly motivated, high school students based in Los Angeles, California.
Coming from an urban area, we are working to preserve dark skies from the ever-growing spread of light pollution. For some, dark skies are necessary for research and exploration. For others, dark skies are a source of wonder, inspiration, and culture. Nonetheless, we believe they should be preserved for the future to cherish.
We protect dark skies to prevent negative consequences to humans and the environment. But in addition to that, dark night skies have been an inspiration to many throughout human history. One may want to pursue a space-related career, such as astronomy, astrophysics, astrophotography, and more, after one touching experience of what dark skies can be like. Personally, I was inspired to start this project after seeing the Milky Way in all its glory for the first time in Cleveland National Forest a few years back. If we protect the night skies, future generations may get the experience to be inspired by the night skies as well.
