Earth Hour Star Walk

Earth Hour Star Walk


To support WWF’s Earth Hour Forestry Commission England is hosting a series of twilight activities throughout March, allowing visitors to the forest, to explore it after dark!

Earth Hour is a global annual celebration which inspires millions of people switch off their lights for one hour to show they care about the planet. It’s a symbolic and spectacular lights out display with a big message – we want to protect the future of our planet!

Embrace the dark by switching off your lights from 8.30 – 9.30pm on 19 March 2016, and attend one of our many Earth Hour events. Enjoy a guided star walk through the forest, led by professional Astronomer, Robert Ince. Robert will explain the constellations and their mythology, unlocking the mystery of the night’s sky.

What will you discover after dark? Our forests are the perfect place for night-time magic, star-gazing, storytelling and animal spotting. Wrap up warm, grab your torch and head along to one of our forests for an after dark adventure!
