The World Wildlife Fund's 3rd annual Earth Hour event is scheduled to happen this Saturday, March 27th from 8:30 to 9:30 PM.
Over 80 million Americans and 1 billion people worldwide participated in Earth Hour last year by turning out their lights for one hour in support of action on climate change and toward creating a cleaner, safer and more secure future.
Landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Las Vegas Strip and the Great Pyramids of Gaza will also participate in the event this year. The City of Chico will also participate by turning off exterior lights at the Chico Municipal Center on Main Street.
The Rawlins Advisory Board encourages you to participate in Earth Hour as well and to tell your friends and neighbors about the event and the importance of our solidarity and recognition of mankinds environmental responsibilities.
