Local Attractions > National Dark Sky Sanctuary

Northern Ontario possesses an abundance of natural resources such as lakes, forests, wildlife, geology and climate that all contribute to our unique natural environment. Manitoulin Island possesses another type of natural resource, a Dark Sky Sanctuary. This is due largely to the surrounding water and minimal development. This type of environment allows the amateur astronomer the chance to get away from the growing light pollution of the city and view of the night sky "like it used to be."
