Arches National Park is now officially certified as an International Dark Sky Park, a place recognized for its quality night skies and commitment to protecting natural darkness.

We speak with an Arches representative to learn more, and also head to Public Lands Corner where host Chad Niehaus explores permit acquisition for running sought-after river stretches.
