NO LIGHTS SATURDAY NIGHT: JOIN ANS AND THE REST OF THE WORLD FOR PLANET-LOVING EARTH HOUR
Earth Hour Goes Digital Amidst Pandemic
CHEVY CHASE, MD – The Audubon Naturalist Society encourages the public to observe Earth Hour as part of ongoing efforts to combat climate change.
WHAT IS EARTH HOUR?
The event itself is quite simple. Businesses, organizations, and individuals are asked to turn off home and building lights for at least one hour. Earth Hour's mission is to (virtually) unite people and bring awareness about the need to take action for our planet in the midst of climate change.
WHEN IS EARTH HOUR?
Saturday, March 28, 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm.
