What are the effects and consequences of this? Join us for a fascinating discussion as nationally-acclaimed experts on human health, habitat and lighting engineering explore the intersections between culture, technology and the environment.

Everyone is welcome, students, homeowners, outdoor enthusiasts, astronomers, professionals, and more. CEUs are available for professionals. Lunch is included. Pre-registration is required.

The seminar covers many aspects of lighting at night, including lighting design and engineering, the human circadian rhythm, habitat requirements, and human cultural meaning.
