One Hour for Nature

Notre Dame, Montreal

Since 2007, people around the world have been turning out their lights for nature on March 28 from 8:30-9:30 pm. Why not go one step further and spend that hour protecting and supporting the natural environment?

1. Are you concerned about light pollution, pedestrian safety, the lack of organic recycling options? Write a letter to City Council or your local Councillor outlining your concerns (Lloydminster, Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, Yorkton).

2. Make a donation to a local nature or environmental organization.

3. Pick up litter around your neighbourhood.

4. Look for and eliminate phantom energy sources in your home.

5. Sit down as a family and share stories about your favorite experiences in nature.

6. Make a wildflower seed bomb or plant some herb or lettuce seeds indoors.

7. Go for a walk away from street lights to count the stars and identify the constellations.

8. Prepare an eco-friendly meal together as a family.
