What’s ON Earth Day in the GTA

Earth day events

Earth Day is officially on April 22, 2017, but you’ll find many events all weekend, and even all month long. Many people are now naming April as ‘earth month’. It’s a great time to take advantage of the healthy planet themed events to reinforce important habits of conservation and preservation in our kids. You’ll find the bulk of community events are focused on community clean-ups and tree-plantings – these events usually free to attend and take place outside. Both positives in our book! See below for some great Earth Day events being held across the GTA.
