This international partnership is building on a long history of cooperation to create a unique and internationally significant area of pristine protected night skies in Northwestern Ontario and Northeastern Minnesota.
In September of 2020, Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness was certified as a Dark Sky Sanctuary.
In December, Voyageurs National Park became a certified Dark Sky Park.
This week we are celebrating the 3rd big step in creating the world's largest managed dark sky areas with the designation of QUETICO.
Certification requires us to become dark sky stewards. Much like becoming stewards of preserving our lands, as dark sky stewards we will continue to monitor the quality of our skies annually.
