Going, Going and Gone!

Candlelight Vigil for Vanishing / Endangered /Extinct  Species!

The Rochester Regional Group of the Sierra Club is holding a candlelight vigil to highlight species near extinction and those recently declared extinct due to the impact of humans on Earth. This is a family event. Please Join us on the day before winter solstice to shed light on these beautiful, curious, and special living things and call attention to urgency of taking action to stop climate change and protect their remaining natural areas on Earth. Each person is welcome to choose a species she/he would like to represent. (See https://www.worldwildlife.org, endangered species).

We will set-up our luminaries at 4:30 PM at the triangle park at 12 Corners in Brighton, Mon. Dec. 21. Vigil runs 4:30 to 6:30 PM. Wear reflective clothing since we will have to cross a street to access the park. Bring a flashlight or headlamp to shine on your poster. Please bike, walk or  car pool and avoid parking in front of any stores there.
Try to bring a poster to let others see what species you cherish and where it lives. We will offer a poster-making session to highlight your species before the event. Check our website (www.sierraclub.org/atlantic/rochester) or facebook (Sierra Club Rochester Regional Group) for details and to let us know you’re coming. Materials provided. Donations invited.
