County buildings to observe Earth Hour

Twenty-three Ramsey County owned facilities will go dark for Earth Hour on Saturday, March 25, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. This is the fourth year Ramsey County is participating in Earth Hour, an annual event organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) where individuals and organizations turn off the lights for one hour to promote energy conservation and action on climate change.
