Stars, planets and cultural traditions

Kejimkujik invites you to experience the astronomical depth of its Dark-Sky Preserve. Gaze at brilliant celestial bodies through a telescope, binoculars, or with the naked eye. Go deeper to discover how stars have inspired centuries of story, song and legend. 

Outdoor shows ponder extraterrestrial life and interstellar phenomena alongside incredible imagery, music and stories. Night hikes and campfire programs examine how artificial light affects humans and wildlife, as well as the value of these Dark-Sky Preserves. And occasional night-time canoe excursions offer a truly magical night-sky perspective.

Welcome to Nova Scotia’s darkest sky - and brightest stars.
