This year’s Earth Day is on a Monday; therefore, many of our province’s Earth Day celebrations are happenings during the weekend right before that Monday. Some of the celebrations are also happening next week too. Hence, there are two parts to our celebrations!
Where To Go This Earth Day Weekend
Here are some activities that you may find nice and close to home in British Columbia this weekend:
- Vancouver’s Earth Day Parade and Festival: -This parade and festival occurs along Commercial Drive and ends with the festival at Grandview Park. There are no floats but with performers in costumes and musical performances.
- Wagg Creek Park: – You can help remove invasive species of plants at this North Vancouver park. There is a leaf compost sale, along with booths and prizes.
- Burnaby Village Museum: – Did you know that the Burnaby Village Museum has a Mason BEE Condo Volunteer program? Visit them this Saturday for an active demonstration hive. It’s at the Pollinator Workshop!
- Stanley Park: – Visit Stanley Park’s Nature House and learn to weaves bionets with the invasive species of plants that the other visitors have collected during the plant pull.
Since these activities and workshops are close to home, leave the car at home and choose to walk or take public transit! Remember to bring your snacks in reusable snack bags and refillable water bottles for your water too!
