Other Earth Day Events in 2017
March For Science Vancouver - The March for Science is a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. The mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue, which has given policymakers permission to reject overwhelming evidence, is a critical and urgent matter. It is time for people who support scientific research and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted. On April 22, we walk out of the lab and into the streets!

Earth Day Volunteers will assemble to plant bee-pollinating shrubs and tree-friendly mushrooms at Everett Crowley Park in Southeast Vancouver (Kerr Street at 64th) on Saturday, April 22th – 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The old Kerr Road Dump is now an Eco-destination of how re-purposed land becomes a natural green refuge for people and wildlife, where year-round community reforesting and park stewardship are Earth Day showcases. Earth Day at Everett Crowley Park offers a wide range of free family-oriented fun including professional visual and performing arts, music, dancing, and interactive Eco-demonstrations, including very special children’s outdoor learning activities – Green guerrilla gardeners most welcome!
