Help to make Kitchener Waterloo green

March 16, 2018 by  

The annual K-W Earth Day celebration is taking place late next month, hosted by the City of Waterloo and the City of Kitchener.

Earth Day is celebrated annually in Canada and the United States on April 22 and encourages people to live a more sustainable and green lifestyle. This event is dedicated to these ideas and is usually held on the weekend after.

Visitors will have the opportunity to plant native trees and shrubs in Kiwanis Park; no doubt they will learn about the significance of the items that they plant. Participants must wear closed-toed shoes for this activity to avoid injury.

There will also be several live birds of prey shows from the Canadian Raptor Conservancy. Sciensational Sssnakes!! will also be presenting snakes and turtles up close; the public will likely have the chance to pet them.

Local exhibitors representing Kitchener and Waterloo environmental and government agencies will be on hand to provide information about all aspects of sustainability. Much of their information will probably be printed, and some of it might be provided by a Waterloo stationery printing company.

The K-W Earth Day celebration will be held at Kiwanis Park in Kitchener on April 28 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. Admission is free of charge. To learn more about this event and the exhibitors, call 519-741-2600 x4177.
