Light at Night: A Glowing Hazard

Wednesday, November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| Free

The Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter, and the Sierra Club Bay Alive Campaign invite you to our online symposium on dark sky and bird-friendly building and lighting design.

The use of LED lighting technology is causing an unintended, yet pervasive and harmful effect: the over-lighting of our nights. Learn about the biological and physical effects of light at night and strategies that can guard our health and environment while providing safe and practical lighting solutions.

Our speakers are global experts in light pollution and bird-safe building and lighting design.
