Upcoming Events

There are lots of great things happening in Calgary for bird and nature lovers. See below for some upcoming events and how to get involved! 

Light Pollution Abatement and Environmental Conservation with RASC February 10, 2024, 7-10pm. 

We often only visit parks or ecological reserves during the day, but what about the plants and animals that must live there 24 hours a day? When we consider plans to improve the ecological sustainability of an area, because of our daytime bias, we often don’t consider that half of the time darkness should be the natural state. Learn how artificial light at night interferes with both the behavior and the health of wild animals and also how plants are affected by nocturnal illumination. Roland Dechesne will share the impacts of too much artificial light and how we can work towards darker skies in and around Calgary. Join us for a fun night celebrating dark nights and visible star filled skies.
