Dark Skies

With a contribution of £4,950 from SDF, the Brecon Beacons Park Society with the assistance of the BBNPA, has achieved the status of first “Dark Sky Reserve in Wales”.

The project has aimed to combat the growing encroachment of light pollution into the Park and to mitigate its adverse effects.

The project sought to raise awareness and understanding of this special quality of the Park through an awareness campaign, public events and an education programme designed to reach every school in the National Park and surrounding area.
