The Niagara Falls Illumination Board is pleased to once again participate in the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) global Earth Hour initiative. On Saturday March 30th, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., in conjunction with several other landmarks across the world, the nightly illumination of Niagara Falls will be turned off.
According to WWF, Earth Hour is the single largest symbolic mass participation event in the world. The purpose of the initiative is to help raise awareness and support for action on the issue of climate change and biodiversity loss. In 2018, an unprecedented 188 countries and territories took part, including nearly 18,000 landmarks and monuments that switched off their lights.
Aside from Earth Hour, Niagara Falls illumination takes place every night of the year.
