Exploring Dark Parks - Day Hikes & Dark Skies
Academic Noncredit

This class will involve overnight camping, day hikes, and dark sky exploration. It will take us into Arches National Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, and surrounding public lands to explore a sampling of trails, arches, vistas, overlooks, and the celebrated dark skies of Southern Utah. From our base camp at Dead Horse Point State Park, we will venture out by foot during the day to explore what the area offers. At night we will journey into the cosmos to learn about the celebrated dark skies of southern Utah, explore cultural interpretations of constellations, and learn why our state has more dark sky parks than any other in the nation. This class has two class meetings and a field experience associated with it. Attendance at both class meetings is mandatory.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
