As a resident of Salt Lake City, you probably know the importance of preserving the night sky. Saving the Dark, a documentary about just that states that 80% of the world’s population is living underneath light polluted skies.

Take your family or some friends out to Antelope Island State Park for a viewing of the film, followed by a night sky viewing. Various screenings are happening throughout the year, so keep an eye out.

This year’s program will feature 8 plays in 3 theatres in addition to a nightly greenshow, backstage tours, and seminars. This is perfect for a supporter of the local arts and theatre scene.
