Headlands named International Dark Sky Park of the Year Award by International Dark Sky Association

Headlands International Dark Sky Park has been recognized for exceptional programs designed to protect the night sky and the human imagination.  Like all Dark Sky Places designated by the International Dark-Sky Association,  Headlands International Dark Sky Park offers visitors a protected nighttime wilderness to experience first-hand the beauty and inspiration found in the natural nightscape. But Headlands really shines in its efforts to provide programs that put visitors in touch with the heritage of human inspiration cast by the stars. Located near the northern tip of Michigan’s lower peninsula, on the shore of Lake Michigan, Headlands International Dark Sky Park safeguards the human imagination by preserving access to both the night sky and the stories it holds. IDA’s program manager, John Barentine says, “Headlands has, for six years since receiving its IDA Dark Sky Park designation, consistently gone above and beyond in terms of the number and variety of dark-skies programs it presents to the public. No other Dark Sky Park quite compares in this regard.” Click here for complete article posted on darksky.org.
