The only membership organisation dedicated to protecting and enhancing Lake District and Cumbrian landscapes
Cumbria has some of the darkest skies in the country, where people are still able to see the spectacular natural wonders of the stars above. That’s why Friends of the Lake District is leading work to gain internationally recognised Dark Skies Reserve status in Cumbria, to help protect this darkness.
Donate to our Dark Skies appeal and help protect the Dark Skies of Cumbria from light pollution.
Johanna Korndorfer, our Dark Skies Project Officer is taking the message out to Parish Councils, Women's Institutes and community groups about importance of safeguarding our dark skies.
Johanna will deliver a talk providing information on why dark skies are important and a demonstration about ways outdoor lighting, with a few simple adjustments, can protect our astronomical heritage, treat nocturnal wildlife better and safeguard our own health and well-being.
If you'd like Johanna to visit your group or organisation and deliver a talk on 'Dark Skies' in Cumbria then do get in touch.You can contact Johanna on 01539 720788 or email her at [email protected] to discuss your event or meeting. She will be delighted to tailor the length of her talk to fit your programme.
