Media Release: Celebrate Earth Week April 22 - 27, 2019

Posted On Tuesday April 09, 2019

The Town of Huntsville together with the Huntsville Public Library, is proud to unveil an entire week of activities for our annual Earth Week celebration, April 22-27.

Earth Day has taken place on April 22nd every year since 1970 and has become one of the most celebrated environmental events worldwide. Our Annual week long celebration is organized by the Library along with our community partners. Many of the programs are free and are suitable for the whole family. Celebrations take place at the library, and at locations across Huntsville. This year we have more community events than ever and are encouraging people to re-think what it means to be green. Workshops are structured around waste reduction, particularly encouraging less single use plastics in your bathroom and kitchen including growing your own food and using all the scraps.

Celebrations include:

  • Storytime and up-cycled crafts at the Huntsville Public Library
  • Launch of the Urban Streetscape Tree Planting Program
  • Annual Compost Giveaway at Conroy Park
  • Zero Waste Kitchen and Zero Waste Bathroom workshops
  • DIY Beeswax Wraps
  • Film Screening of Hadwin’s Judgement
  • Muskoka Stewardship Conference
