Reclaiming the Night will be a feature-length documentary following the story of Dr. Samuel Singer as he tirelessly works to make Jackson, Wyoming and neighboring Grand Teton National Park Dark Sky Certified. His story will be supplemented by the alarming consequences of excessive lighting at night, and why it’s so essential that the true night sky be restored to his town, and beyond. It’s not just about seeing a mesmerizing night sky. The United States alone is spending over $2,000,000,000.00 every single year just on unnecessary lighting. The side-effects of this wasted energy are weakened human health, poorer visibility and safety on our streets, and damage to wildlife. Up to 1,000,000,000 birds are killed every year just from light pollution. To find out more, watch the trailer.

Yellowstone National Park
The world's first national park, Yellowstone National Park ignited a conservation frenzy due to its abundantly unique geology and wildlife. It's a home to countless species of wildlife and plant life and offers a glimpse into how well nature can take care of itself when given the chance. A park that is larger than both Delaware and Connecticut combined, it has endless trails to explore as well as lessons to teach anyone willing to learn. Yellowstone National Park is a truly unique gift that has more to offer than many humans have even begun to realize.
Grizzly Bear 399 Family
The most beloved grizzly bear of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and beyond, Grizzly Bear #399 first found fame while raising her first set of three cubs along roadsides to avoid a fatal encounter from male grizzlies. Needless to say, both locals and visitors fell in love with her and her cubs. Both she and her daughter, #610, now frequenting the same areas as her mother, each emerged with new cubs in the spring of 2011 and thus the love and admiration of this family reached international fame. Grizzly Bear #399 and #610 are a blessing and delight for Grand Teton National Park and its visitors.
Grand Teton National Park
My personal favorite national park, and one of the more underrated in the country, Grand Teton National Park is home to one of the most picturesque mountain ranges in the world. Towering above a massive valley used by dozens of species of wildlife for migration, the Teton Mountains offer new views every day both from Jackson Hole below and inside the mountains themselves where endless hiking trails can be found.
Gros Ventre Mountains
Often overshadowed by the neighboring Teton Mountains, the Gros Ventre Mountains are a local secret for tremendous mountain scenery and escapes into secluded mountain destinations. With the Gros Ventre Wilderness at the heart of the mountains, towering peaks and ideal mountain environments are up every canyon.
