Welcome

The Colorado Plateau Dark Sky Cooperative aims to voluntarily link communities, tribes, businesses, state agencies, federal agencies, and citizens, in a collaborative effort to celebrate the view of the cosmos, minimize the impact of outdoor lighting, and ultimately restore natural darkness to the area.

We hope to lead the way in protecting natural darkness as a precious resource, and create a model for dark sky protection, by establishing America’s first Dark Sky Cooperative on the Colorado Plateau, in collaboration with other federal agencies, partners, and local communities.
