Night Sky and Nocturnals

Moonlight, as it waxes and wanes in the night sky, gives key signals to our wild creatures, letting them know the passage of time and seasons. Some nighttime adapted species, such as owls, navigate by the moon and starlight with heightened eyesight sensitive to the smallest amount of light. Other species, such as bats navigate by sound, but pursue insect species that respond to cues of the nighttime light. These orchestrated relationships have evolved with moon and starlight guiding the nighttime lives of nocturnal creatures.  Unfortunately, the incredible sensitivity of these species to natural nighttime light is negatively affected by light pollution, the spillover of light from human activities. The notion of light pollution and protecting the night sky has recently gained attention across the US, however, when The Preserve was created 25 years ago this community was already thinking about protecting the night sky. Downcast and limited lighting limits light pollution, reduces impacts on nocturnal wildlife and ensures the majesty of a starlight canopy can be seen above the lands of the Preserve.
