Lexington to celebrate Earth Hour

The Lexington community is invited to participate in Earth Hour on Saturday, March 25, an opportunity to give 60 minutes of time to help the Earth through volunteering, learning or inspiring others to improve and restore our natural environment.  

In the past, Earth Hour participants were encouraged to turn off their lights for one hour, from 8:30 – 9:30 p.m. to raise awareness for energy-related causes. Now, the focus has increased to all environmental issues. Give an hour of time to improve water quality, reduce waste or recycle, conserve energy or participate in any activity that makes our community a healthier place to live, work and play.

The City of Lexington is offering an Earth Hour Night Hike at McConnell Springs, starting at 8:30 p.m. on March 25. Take a slow-paced walk along the trails of the park to show support for our planet.

Participating in Earth Hour is a great way to get in the spirit for Earth Day on April 22.

Participants who post on social media can use the hashtash #EarthHourLex to let everyone know about their Earth Hour activities.

The World Wildlife Fund is the primary sponsoring organization of Earth Hour. You can learn more by visiting lexingtonky.gov/earth-hour.
