Earth Hour 2

Earth Hour

As a partner of the World Wildlife Fund, the Town of Halton Hills will once again celebrate Earth Hour on March 30, 2019, at 8:30 p.m. Turn off unnecessary lighting to bring attention to the decline of wildlife. In Canada, more than one-half of monitored species populations have declined on average by 83 per cent since 1970. By 2020, we are expected to lose 67 per cent of wildlife populations.
