Borrego Springs - Dark Sky Community


Last updated 4/1/2016 at 11:33am

The Borrego Springs Dark Sky Coalition is proud to welcome Regalos de Borrego and Stanlunds Inn & Suites into the growing number of “Dark Sky Friendly Businesses” in our community.

These businesses have nighttime lighting which does not cause sky glow, light trespass or glare.

Borrego Springs is the only Dark Sky Community certified in California by the International Dark Sky Association. This recognition brings many visitors to the valley, seeking a view of the stars which is no longer visible in most urban areas.

Businesses and organizations in the area may apply for the Night Sky Friendly Business program. Application and information is available on

For more information about the Dark Sky Friendly Business Recognition Program or the Borrego Springs Dark Sky Coalition, please contact Betsy Knaak or Grace Rickard at 760-767-3052 or
