Welcome to the first ever Welsh Dark Skies Week! - (February 19th-27th, 2022)
We are proud to be working together with the whole protected landscape family in Wales to bring to you a week of online and in person events around the country.
Together, the National Parks and Area’s of Outstanding Natural Beauty are all working hard to raise awareness of light pollution and how this impacts not just our view to the stars, but also our wildlife and health. We would love for you to join us on our journey around Wales’s protected landscapes to learn more about the work that is going on there to protect our Dark Skies and what you could do to help.
