Earth Day in Regina

By:  

Rita Holowenko

 


Earth Day is this April 22, 2013.  Helping save our planet doesn’t have to be daunting – just remember to shut it off.  Shut off the water when you’re brushing your teeth, shut the car off when parked, and shut off the lights when you leave a room.  And our favourite, shut off the electronics and spend time outside in nature. Kids will gain a whole new respect for the outdoors and the earth when they play outdoors. 

Here are some family friendly events for the family to celebrate Earth Day:

Families are invited to bring their children or grandchildren to enjoy the wonderful tropical setting. Activities for adults and children range from cooking demonstrations, crafts, planting, stories, and painting to composting and playing with soil
