April 10, 2019

The Port of Seattle has awarded a $10,000 contract to the Goldendale Chamber of Commerce to support astronomy and science tourism awareness of Goldendale’s unique facilities.

“Dark sky awareness is something the City of Goldendale strongly supports, as demonstrated by our recently updated lighting ordinance,” stated Goldendale Mayor Mike Canon. “Dark skies, the Goldendale Observatory, and the Port of Seattle’s eco-tourism interests come together very well.”

Within the Goldendale vicinity, highlighted sites include the Goldendale Observatory State Park and Maryhill Museum’s Stonehenge. Farther areas cited include the Hanford Reservation’s LIGO and B Reactor installations.
