Learn about 'Protecting Dark Skies' at Batavia Plain Dirt Gardeners meeting

Open your eyes and hearts to the joys of the night! The next Batavia Plain Dirt Gardeners meeting on Tuesday, June 20, will feature "Protecting Dark Skies."

As a delegate of the International Dark-Sky Association, Adam Kreuzer is passionate about teaching about the beauty of dark skies and the ways we can protect the night from light pollution.

Barb McKittrick, a naturalist and dark sky-enthusiast, is especially interested in how local ecology responds to changes in nighttime light levels.

Join the club's monthly meeting to hear Kreuzer and McKittrick explain the concept of light pollution, discuss the impact of light pollution on humans and wildlife, and talk about we can restore dark skies in our own communities.

The meeting will begin with socializing and setup for potluck at 6:30 p.m.

The business meeting, dinner and presentation will be at 7 p.m.

The club meets at Batavia Public Library, 10 S. Batavia Ave.

Bring a dish to pass and be ready to enjoy, share, and learn.
