Earth Day

The celebration of Earth Day on April 22 reminds us about the need to keep our ecosystem healthy, and that everyone across the globe can help!

Although communities won’t be able to come together as groups again this year, we can still contribute positively as individuals, while practicing social distancing measures.

Opportunities could include a self-neighbourhood clean-up to collect garbage while walking in your own community, and challenging others to do the same.

For self-neighbourhood cleanups, please ensure compliance with local and federal health advisories regarding physical distancing and sanitary awareness.

In celebration of Earth Day, please consider supporting conservation projects that protect and restore natural and cultural heritage and strengthen communities in the Toronto region by making a donation to the Toronto and Region Conservation Foundation.

We also invite you to explore fun e-Learning videos, activities, and resources that help families deepen their understanding and appreciation of nature, ecology, and cultural heritage — all from the comfort of home:

  • Our At Home With Nature webpage provides a listing of upcoming online events, as well as videos of previous Facebook Live sessions, and downloadable resources. Check back regularly as we continue to add new resources.
