This Saturday we celebrate Earth Day, the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year. It was first celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events take place in more than 190 countries around the world to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
So take a few seconds to yourself in some nature and reflect on how great it is to be living on earth these days.
Science World After Dark - Earth Day Edition: After the kids leave for the day, adults take over. Explore Science World at sunset and enjoy the urban gardens, model ecosystem and resident chickens.
7th Annual Earth Day Parade & Festival: Since 2011, we have flocked to Commerical Drive each April for the Annual Earth Day Celebration. This celebration of climate action includes music, entertainment, activities, special guests and creative art. It's free and family friendly.
Party for the Planet in Surrey: This is BC's largest celebration of Earth Day. The party will include a bike powered smoothie stop, tree and plant sale, road hockey, a rock climbing wall, food & drink and fun photo booths.
Whatever you choice, let's get out and celebrate!
