The City of Frederick will turn out the lights at City Hall and City Hall Park on Saturday, March 27, 2021, from 8:30PM-9:30PM to celebrate Earth Hour. The hour is a symbolic lights-out event hosted around the globe to show support for environmental initiatives.
This single hour of lights-out reinforces the City's climate initiatives, such as purchasing renewable energy, restoring streams, and increasing tree canopy. Earth Hour "aims to increase awareness and spark global conversations on protecting nature, not only to combat the climate crisis but to ensure our own health, happiness, prosperity and even survival."
Mayor O'Connor and the Sustainability Department invite residents to join in on the Earth Hour with us. For more information about the global initiative, visit earthhour.org.
