Stella The Night-Wise Owl Terms of Participation

The Stella program has been established by the Arkansas Natural Sky Association (ANSA) to promote enjoyment, access, and preservation of Arkansas’s remaining dark skies by assisting the consumer in finding host facilities in locations with dark skies that employ Responsible Lighting Practices. The program makes no effort to determine the suitability of the accommodation in any other respect and recipients of the Stella designation should not infer otherwise.

In allowing qualifying properties to participate in the program and to display Stella materials and logos, ANSA is not relinquishing ownership thereof and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change the terms of qualification with ninety days written notice. Further ANSA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to revoke a designation for a property, or group of properties that it finds inappropriate, misleading or damaging to the Stella program. Each applicant owning/managing a qualifying property agrees to notify ANSA immediately, by emailing [email protected], should conditions change at any previously designated property that would or might impact its qualification for the program and to promptly remove any references that might suggest that the property qualifies for the Stella program once a notice of disqualification is communicated. In accepting the Stella qualification each qualifying entity accepts the above stated terms.
