Earth Hour Update

Our group Earth Hour event has been changed due to concerns about COVID-19. We encourage everyone to celebrate at home in order to protect our community. Follow the Earth Hour page and Redwood Coast AAZK's Facebook page to learn more and see our ideas for activities to do in the dark while taking a stand against climate change!

Every year, the world comes together during Earth Hour to advocate for policy change and global actions to mitigate the impact of climate change. Join us in turning off your lights from 8:30 - 9:30pm local time on Saturday, March 28!

Learn more about this global Earth Hour event at their website.

This month's event is cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19. On the third Tuesday of each month, our training interest group meets to watch animal training webinars and discuss our own training goals. All are welcome! We meet at 6pm in the Learning Lab and enter through Gate C.
