A stellar idea — dark skies could boost Page
The Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and the Glen Canyon Natural History Association invited two dark sky and astro-tourism experts to Page last week to educate the residents of Page and the Page City Council about the possible benefits of bringing astro-tourism to our area.
Last Tuesday night, John Barentine, program manager for the International Dark Sky Association, and Nate Ament gave a two-hour presentation to the public explaining how a dark-sky designation for Glen Canyon and Page could increase our tourism without compromising our safety and laid out the nuts and bolts of how it could be implemented. They presented the Page City Council with a condensed version of the same program the following night during the city council’s work session.
