WATERTON PARK, AB – Waterton Lakes National Park is officially a “Dark Sky Park” after meeting international requirements.

Waterton, and Glacier National Park in Montana, received the certification together by installing dark, sky-friendly lighting.

Officials say the special lights and fixtures ensure public safety while reducing the harmful impacts of artificial lighting on wildlife, protect human health, and preserve night skies for optimal viewing.

Waterton joins 12 other Parks Canada administered places with dark sky designations.

Dark Sky Park certification also helps raise awareness about light pollution and highlights how Waterton-Glacier International Dark Sky Park is reducing the impacts of outdoor lighting while providing opportunities for visitors to experience the night sky at its best.
