  2017 Earth Hour

Held at the REACH Museum

A family friendly event to celebrate National Earth Hour was held at the REACH museum on March 25. The event included an outdoor night hike, stargazing, a rope labyrinth, environmental exhibits, electric cars, live music, campfire, popcorn, and activities include candle making, and tasting organic wines. Youth created posters showing how they can help the environment. Everyone present voted and the winners selected their prizes. Joining the world with turning out the lights, we lit candles and enjoyed campfire from 8:30-9:30. Hope to see you next year!

Here are some photos from our event!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earth Hour is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world.   Born out of a hope that we could mobilize people to take action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.

 Join millions of people by turning off lights, computers, and TV's. Unplug and power down, and enjoy the calm and quiet, or companionship of others.  Official Video at www.earthhour.org

Ways to Celebrate Earth Hour  

AT HOME: Turn off the lights and have some fun!

You don't have to go out to celebrate Earth Hour. The basic idea is this: Take an hour to reflect on how electricity impacts us by joining people around the world in turning off your lights from 8:30-9:30 pm on March 25.

Here are some ideas for celebrating earth hour at home:

  • Look for lights and turn them off.
  • Listen for energy consumers or water leaks that go unnoticed.
  • Read by candlelight
  • Make shadow puppets
  • Sing songs
  • Have a picnic in your living room
  • Take a moonlight walk
  • Hunt for night critters 
  • Star gaze
  • Make a fort
  • Hike Badger Mountain
  • Play flashlight tag
  • Meditate
  • Journal
  • Tell spooky stories
  • Simply relax
