Richmond celebrates Earth Week with free planet-friendly programs
05 April 2022
Bird watching, invasive species pulls and tree planting are some of the ways residents can participate in this year’s City of Richmond Earth Week, which runs Saturday, April 16 to Sunday, April 24. Residents can get their hands dirty or simply learn more about the local environment through 20+ free events offered by the City of Richmond and its community partners. All events are listed at www.richmond.ca/earthweek.
This year for Earth Week the City of Richmond has partnered with organizations that include Birds Canada, the Lower Mainland Green Team, Urban Bounty and the Richmond Garden Club to deliver earth friendly programs. The unique, interactive programs offered focus on environmental sustainability, citizen science and garden management and are designed to be fun and informative.
For residents wanting to support Richmond’s environment year-round, the City encourages individuals, groups and business to enroll in the Partners for Beautification Program. This program promotes local citizen stewardship with volunteer options that include cleaning up litter by adopting an area in their neighbourhood and engaging in shoreline clean-ups along the many trails that line the island city.
