Be  a Star! Earn the Nature, Neighbor, and Night-Sky Friendly Lighting Award

The BE A STAR Award rewards landowners who contribute to conservation efforts by protecting the night sky. The program encourages landowners to evaluate and possibly modify their outdoor lighting so as to keep the light they need while eliminating glare, light trespass and excess light on their property.

Landowners earning the award will receive an attractive yard sign, certificate, and window decal to show they have reviewed and, if necessary, modified their lighting to consider nature, their neighbors, and our shared view of the night sky. Every light counts in the quest to reduce light pollution!

Your lights may already merit this award. Download the application and show you care!
