Guests invited to Put-in-Bay South Bass Island park, visitors center to take part in Earth Hour Program
Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial invites visitors to join millions of people across the world to celebrate Earth Hour by switching off their lights at 8:30 p.m. for one hour Saturday to help make a statement of concern about global climate change and to demonstrate a commitment to finding solutions.
"We are also inviting visitors to join us at Perry's Victory in Put-in-Bay, Ohio for a special Earth Hour Program starting at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 28," added Superintendent Blanca Stransky.
The program will feature Gene Zajac, director of the Shaker Heights Schools Planetarium and Solar System Ambassador, who will conduct a program in the visitors center on the beauties of the night sky. After the presentation, the lights will go out and the celebration will continue outside. Visitors will be encouraged to share their recollections about the Lake Erie area or just enjoy the night sky.
Participants are encouraged to dress warmly and bring lawn chairs to sit around the campfire rings. Cookies and hot chocolate will be provided by Eastern National, the park's cooperative association.
