Earth Matters – The impact of light at night

In our third Earth Matters session of the year amateur astronomer Steve Fletcher will be discussing the negative impacts of light at night.

Steve will talk about the effect of light on wildlife, energy use and our carbon footprint, and the impact of light pollution on human health. In addition he will talk about Dark Sky Parks and the threat that light pollution poses to Australia’s only Dark Sky Park.

Earth Matters will be held in the staffroom at Grafton Primary School, Queen Street Grafton from 5.30 – 7pm on Monday July 15.

There will be time for questions and discussion. Refreshments will follow.

Earth Matters is a session on the environment which is conducted every two months by the Clarence Valley Conservation Coalition
