At Clyde Iron Works we'll explore the human circadian rhythm and environmental impacts of human-made light. and learn about the latest strategies and technologies to curb light pollution. 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.
