Arches National Park was certified as an International Dark Sky Park in 2019.
We believe that preserving the natural night sky is an integral part of the resource protection done at Arches, and we’re committed to the ongoing conservation of this important cultural, natural, and scientific resource.
Night-sky watching in Arches remains a democratic joy, available to all and open every night from dusk to dawn.
Arches National Park is supported by its member organization, Canyonlands Natural History Association (CNHA).
