Dark Sky Preserve

Dark Sky Preserves are locations known for outstanding views of the night sky. The Kickapoo Valley Reserve and Wildcat Mountain State Park are proposed Dark Sky Preserves. Wildcat has been known for years for fantastic night sky viewing. There are six recognized Dark Sky Preserves in North America today.

The Kickapoo Valley Reserve occasionally host star gazing workshops. Please consult the KVR Calendar for upcoming events, or sign up for the monthly upcoming events email, through
