Event Summary:

Event Description:
Lisa Flanagan has been a resident of the Texas Hill Country since 1988. She is a massage therapist, and has been a member of the Hill Country Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists since 2013. Having served on the board for eight years, she is now free to focus on other interests. Lisa became aware of the incredible beauty of the night skies when she started going to Big Bend National Park in 2002. Prior to that, she enjoyed the night sky in Kerrville, but had no idea how precious dark skies truly are. Having spent many years in the Houston and San Antonio areas, much of the night sky was not easy to see, considering the light pollution cast off from the blaring lights of the big cities.

In 2014, she attended a Dark Skies symposium in Dripping Springs. Made aware of the detrimental effects of all this light, this was a turning point in how she treated light, and was made aware, especially, of the way animals, plants, insects, and yes, even humans were adversely affected by unnatural light that changed how they slept, procreated and grew.

This presentation will give you information about the effects of light, and ways that you can change your own impact, and hopefully, that of your neighbors, your world, and the natural world. We can help repair the damage, it’s not too late. But it is vitally important that we act now before it is too late. You can be a part of it.
