Each year, towards the end of March, Earth Hour is observed worldwide to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change. The World Wide Fund for Nature organized this event to encourage households and businesses to do their part.
Normally, households and businesses are encouraged to turn off most, if not all, of the lights for one hour. However, other parts of the world exert more effort in taking action against climate change just like the Earth Hour Night Hike that will take place at the Chamna Natural Preserve in Richland on March 29.
Earth Hour Night Hike
This is an interpretive night hike in the Chamna Natural Preserve where only small flashlights will be used. If you’re joining, you need to dress appropriately in anticipation of the weather and possible bugs.
Meeting place will be at the parking lot near the I-182 Bridge at 8PM. Nevertheless, while this is an event for a good cause, no children under 5 (and pets, too) will be allowed, primarily due to the nature of the hike.
For more information or to RSVP, please get in touch with Scott, a Tapteal Greenway volunteer, at (509) 627-3621. You may also visit www.gogreentricities.org for more Earth Hour events and ideas.Posted by Colleen D Lane on
