Earth Day Every Day

Written by Denise Deby.

Earth Day 2017 has come and gone, but if you’re looking to make good on any “Earth Day resolutions,” or keep up focus on the environment, here are some suggestions:

Get involved with an environmental organization

Katherine Forster over at Wild. Here. has launched a new resource on her website: a listing of volunteer opportunities at nature organizations. It contains an impressive number of ways to get involved, such as helping maintain or advocate for our city’s wild and natural spaces. Katherine explains, “There are so many local organizations doing such great work to help nature and our environment and it’s also fun for locals to get outdoors and lend a hand!” Do check out this great site.

Re-energize for living sustainably

Spring is a good time to reconnect with the earth, renew a commitment to living lightly and re-energize for the journey. Sign up for Bike to Work Month and the 30×30 Nature Challenge, both in May, or take a walk in one of the above-mentioned natural areas.

Keep showing your support for the environment

The People’s Climate March is happening on Saturday, Apr. 29, 2017 in Ottawa and other cities. Here in Ottawa, it’s from 12:30-3 p.m. starting at Confederation Park. Details here.

Please let us know of other suggestions you have.
