EARTH HOUR EXTRAVAGANZA

Saturday, March 26, 6:30 – 9 p.m.

Albuquerque—Join us in celebrating this worldwide event. Earth Hour Extravaganza features bilingual, hands-on activities, Planetarium shows, and the opportunity to come together and construct a large-scale map of New Mexico that records our pledges to the Earth. Explore the Museum and experience the excitement and celebration as we switch off the lights and head outdoors to discover the night sky.

Millions of people switch off their lights for one hour to raise awareness about global climate change. This event is free, and includes FREE admission to the Museum and Planetarium!

In partnership with Community Science Connections, Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Libraries, National Science Foundation, and Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Mission and History of Earth Hour
On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations and governments around the world will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. In the U.S. where we are already feeling the impacts of climate change, Earth Hour sends a clear message that Americans care about this issue and want to turn the lights out on dirty air, dangerous dependency on foreign oil and costly climate change impacts, and make the switch to cleaner air, a strong economic future and a more secure nation.

Since its inception four years ago, Earth Hour’s non-partisan approach has captured the world’s imagination and become a global phenomenon. Over one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2010 – involving 128 countries on seven continents.

On Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 8:30 p.m. local time, Earth Hour will once again cascade around the globe, from New Zealand to Hawaii. Join us for this FREE event!
