Newport Night Sky L/S T Black
Wisconsin’s only wilderness state park, has now also become the first state park in Wisconsin designated by IDA as an International Dark Sky Park, one of just 48 parks in the world to earn the distinction.
Located at the northern tip of Door County on the western shore of Lake Michigan, Newport has a dark sky that offers excellent nighttime viewing with an unobstructed view of the eastern horizon. As a designated wilderness park, the hectare (2,373-acre) park offers only backpack camping and has minimal developments beyond the park office and a picnic area with a park shelter. This is a favorite park of so many and we feel fortunate to have it in our back yard! Ecology is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this t-shirt to Friends of Newport State Park!
