DarkSky Texas

Location: Driftwood, Texas

DarkSky Texas (Formerly known as The Texas Chapter of the International Dark-Sky Association) promotes the use of better lighting to help restore our view of the nighttime sky, while improving the safety and well-being of both people and wildlife. DarkSky Texas members are a volunteer educational group working to engage citizens and public officials to help Texans reduce light pollution. The organization’s slogan is “Better Lights for Better Nights”. Through DarkSky Texas’ work they aim to make lasting changes in the way we all think of outdoor lighting across the state. DarkSky Texas members have been active for over twenty-five years in educational efforts, in the successful creation of the twenty-one International Dark Sky Places in Texas, in writing and consulting on outdoor lighting ordinances, and in recognizing individual properties with the Be A Star Award when they follow the Five Principles of Responsible Outdoor Lighting.
