In our technology-fuelled world, children are spending less time wandering around the great outdoors and much more time plugged in to a screen. As parents, it becomes increasingly important to bestow on our children the importance of interacting with nature and taking care of the environment.
When we hear the word conservation, we usually imagine other people involved in organizations trying to protect something that needs protecting.
If we are to embrace the power of the Dark Side then it is up to us to contact our MLAs and Alberta Transportation to let them know that Canada’s first Nocturnal Preserve, the ASCCA, and one of Canada’s largest Astrophysical Observatories, the RAO, should be kept dark; and that they are worthy of a Special Geographical Area designation that would require lighting designs to be designed to minimize light pollution as outlined in IESNA RP-33 in the Alberta Transportation Highway Lighting Guide.
We love our furry companions, but there are quite a few reasons why dogs should stay behind when you visit places like the ASCCA. Even dogs that are well-controlled and on a leash can have a negative impact on wildlife, even if their owners are sure to pick up after them.
