earth hour

Today Paul Pepper visits with BARBARA BUFFALOE, Sustainability Manager at the City of Columbia, about the many planned activities to help us celebrate our planet Earth! Starting tomorrow, turn off any non-essential lights and devices from 8:30-9:30 p.m.; then there's the Show Me Native Yards and Neighborhoods Workshop with Nadia Navarrete-Tindall; plus, the Advancing Renewables in the Midwest Conference is coming up in mid-April. So much to do - watch for details! March 23, 2018

Many people across Mid-Missouri shut off their lights Saturday night to participate in Earth Hour 2014. The worldwide initiative started in 2007, and has grown rapidly since its inception.

Regional news from the KBIA Newsroom, including:

  • Federal sequestration cuts will close Columbia's airport control tower
  • MoDOT issues travel advisory ahead of winter storm
  • 'Earth Hour' organizers say it's more than electricity

The kids might have the whole week off, but you have something better: the weekend. Soak up some sun this weekend and pretend you're on spring break, too. Visit the vineyards. Run a 5K. Adopt a new pup--anything to stay in the sun!
