The dark night skies over the Valley are recognized by locals as a valuable natural resource. The towns of Westcliffe and Silver Cliff have worked side by side to ensure the preservation of the night skies for the benefit of future residents. As a result of these collaborative efforts, the towns have earned Colorado’s first International Dark Sky Community certification from the International Dark-Sky Association.
