Natural Bridges National Monument was named the world’s first International Dark-Sky Park in 2007.
Natural Bridges has made protecting its dark sky a priority so that people can enjoy the stunning river of light formed by the Milky Way rising over Owachomo Bridge.
The goal of a Dark Sky Park is to preserve the skies and educate the public about light pollution and how they can make a difference.
Natural Bridges National Monument is supported by its member organization, Canyonlands Natural History Association (CNHA).
