Dark skies is a term popularized in the past decades to refer to a lack of light pollution in our night sky. 

Large urban centres especially are characterized by large amounts of unshielded and wasted lighting which makes what we used to call a "clear night sky" a feature of the past.  Many studies tell us now that light pollution is responsible for negative human health, behavioural changes in flora and fauna, wasted energy and the immeasurable loss of the inherent cultural value of the clear night skies. 

We are very fortunate that our Municipality enjoys some of the darkest skies in southern Ontario which is an important asset to both preserve and share.  The Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association is partnering with the Bruce Peninsula Environment Group on a range of comprehensive initiatives to ensure that our dark skies will not only be preserved, but, leveraged for sustainable economic advantage.
