Many know the Appalachian Trail traverses through protected lands. But did you know these same protections directly benefit the night skies above the Trail as well?
In our latest short film, "Go Dark - A Wild East Story", take a journey with Atlanta-based LatinXhikers and astronomer Dr. Tyler Nordgren as they experience the splendor of a starry sky that shines brighter because of the wildness of A.T. lands.
Through gorgeous cinematography by director Chris Gallaway, you will see the Trail like never before and learn how the A.T. and the skies above it benefit from greater landscape protection.
We hope you enjoy the show!
