Officials from World Wildlife Fund will join Clark County, Nevada Commissioner Larry Brown, City of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, Las Vegas showgirls and the World Wildlife panda will convene at the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign to officially kick off the Las Vegas Valley’s participation in Earth Hour—a global event calling for action on climate change – on Tues., March 9 at 11 a.m.
Named a prime showcase city for Earth Hour 2010, Las Vegas will stand in solidarity with cities throughout the world to raise awareness about climate change by getting people to do something quite simple—turn off their lights for one hour on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. PST.
At the press conference in front of the sign, County and City leaders will put the call out to businesses and residents throughout the Valley to join the Strip and off-Strip properties, organizations and government agencies who have agreed to participate in this exciting project.
Parking is available at The Little Church of the West – 4617 Las Vegas Boulevard South. Beginning at 10:15 a.m., a shuttle will transport attendees to and from the site. Television news trucks will have access to bus/taxi zones on site.
