The Town of Bracebridge is once again participating in Earth Hour which will take place this Saturday, March 30th at 8:30 p.m.

Earth Hour is a worldwide grassroots movement by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to unite people to take action for the planet. Engaging a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues, Earth Hour was famously started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007.

Since then, it has grown to engage hundreds of millions of supporters, individuals and organizations alike, in more than 7,000 cities and towns in over 162 countries and territories worldwide.

This year, the Town will participate in Earth Hour by turning off non-essential lighting in locations around town.
