The City of Grande Prairie and County of Grande Prairie invite the public to attend an Earth Day Community Celebration and Tradeshow on Saturday, April 21.

The “Bats, Bees, Birds and Trees” themed event runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Teresa Sargent Hall in the Montrose Cultural Centre. The event features fun, free activities for all ages that range from face painting, to repurposing mason jars into eco-friendly crafts and planters.

The family-friendly event will also host various vendors who will share information on green initiatives and have interactive activities with prize draws. In honour of Earth Day, the City of Grande Prairie Transit will be free for all riders on April 21.

“Developing sustainable and environmentally conscious communities is a key part of a diverse and healthy region” said Bill Given, City Mayor. “We are pleased to work together with the County to offer residents a chance to learn about green initiatives throughout our region and hope to see many citizens attend the event.”

“The County is pleased to partner with the City to host this Earth Day celebration," said Leanne Beaupre, County Reeve. “We recognize the significance of supporting Earth Day and initiatives that support preserving our natural environment. The Earth Day celebration is one great avenue for residents to learn about the many ways we can help protect our plants, animals and environment.”

City Mayor Bill Given and County Reeve Leanne Beaupre will both be attending the Earth Day Celebration to mark the date with proclamations for the City and County, respectively.
