as Earth Day goes
“Back to Nature!”

About the theme…
The 2017 theme for Celebrate Earth Day in Maple Ridge is “Back to Nature” and we are looking forward to highlighting nature – one of the best things about living in Maple Ridge!

One of the main ideas behind this theme is that if residents (and their kids!) get away from screens and spend more time in nature, they will learn to love it and fight to save it. This year, we are partnering with outdoor & environmental groups to organize lots of lead-up outdoor activities throughout March & April to get people outside. Activities include canoe tours, trail clearing, salmon fry release, nature printing & photography, family hikes, and more!

We are looking forward to getting people outdoors to explore local parks, appreciate our community’s natural assets, and (re)discover the healing aspects of nature. The main Earth Day event, which attracts over 3000 people, will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10am – 2pm at Memorial Peace Park.
