Celebrate Dark Skies in Maine with AMC
Join the Appalachian Mountain Club in celebrating the recent designation of AMC’s Maine Woods property as an International Dark Sky Park! Our virtual event will take place on November 11th at 6:30 pm EST.

The AMC Maine Woods International Dark Sky Park lies at the edge of the North Maine Woods, an expanse of more than 14,000 square kilometers of largely uninhabited forest land that stretches from Monson, Maine, to the border of Canada. This region is one of the darkest places remaining on the East Coast and has also been identified as an area of exceptionally high habitat connectivity and climate change resilience.

The celebratory event will feature three engaging speakers, astronomer Dr. Heidi Hammel, aerial photographer Isaac Crabtree, and Carthage College Professor of Physics and Astronomy Dr. Doug Arion. All will discuss the value of preserving and capturing the dark skies from their own perspective. We are happy to also be joined by AMC President and CEO John Judge, AMC VP for Conservation Susan Arnold, and AMC Maine Woods International Dark Sky Park Superintendent Steve Tatko.

All registrants will be automatically entered to win dark sky inspired prizes. One prize winner will receive a free one-night stay for two at their choice of AMC Maine Wilderness Lodge. Other prizes include dark sky stickers, postcards and hats.
