In case you’ve been living under a rock, Earth Hour is from 8:30 to 9:30 this Saturday. Although, I guess if you’re living under rock, earth hour is every hour…
U of T’s AstroTours is hosting Earth Hour once again…except it’s a little longer than an hour. Admission is free and you can register here. Professor Suresh Sivanandam will be speaking on infrared astronomy, with refreshments and stargazing afterwards, using U of T’s telescope. There will also be planetarium shows starting at 8pm in the McLennan Physical Sciences building.

For the 10th anniversary of Earth Hour, Madeleine McDowell will be leading the walk along the Humber River.

There will be refreshments and speakers after the walk as well.
