Discover the Dark Sky in 2019
The Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are pleased to announce an exciting programme of events to raise awareness of our Dark Sky Project.
We have teamed up with astronomical experts Techniquest to bring you a diverse package, from planetarium shows and laser talks to out of this world crafts including building a constellation viewer and rocket workshops not to mention opportunities to dress up as an Astronaut!
We hope these events will raise awareness of the importance of the night sky, not only to our own health and well-being but also the wildlife and flora and fauna that depend on darkness for survival.
We would also like to introduce a new member of our team, Dani Robertson.
Dani is the Dark Sky Partnership Officer for North Wales and is working on behalf of Anglesey, Llyn and the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB’s as well as Snowdonia National Park Authority. She will be in post for two years to assist with the delivery of events as well as coordinate actions associated with our application to the International Dark Sky Association. Good luck Dani.
