Guests and local residents are invited to celebrate Earth Hour through Stories of the Cosmos at The Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. Held on the Eco-Adventure Center’s Connect the Dots outdoor game board, Stories of the Cosmos is presented complimentary from 8 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 23, 2013.
The night sky is filled with stars, far off galaxies and endless mysteries. During Stories of the Cosmos, Eco-Adventure Center naturalists will guide guests in discovering the Big and Little Dipper, Hercules, Orion, Pleiades, Taurus and Scorpio, all constellations that can be seen in the night sky from Dana Point in March.
“By holding Stories of the Cosmos outside by candlelight, we are supporting the Earth Hour mission, as well as offering a fun, educational experience for guests of all ages,” said Eco-Adventure Center Director Lyn Evins.
Earth Hour is a worldwide event that encourages households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change.
