Yours to Protect Weekend
April 22 @ 8:00 am - April 24 @ 5:00 pm
This year, Earth Day falls on a Friday. So we’re turning Earth Day into a three-day ‘Yours to Protect’ weekend so we can come together to celebrate Ontario’s natural heritage and call on our government to do a better job protecting it!
Ontario’s population is growing and we need to build vibrant, affordable and sustainable communities throughout the province. By housing people in walkable communities close to where they work, we can reduce our need for new highways and sprawl developments and preserve the wetlands, farmland and forests we cherish so dearly. We envision an Ontario where our cities, towns and villages grow within nature, instead of on top of it.
On April 22nd, 23rd and 24th we’ll be working with local groups all across the province who want to host rallies, protests and nature walks to draw attention to local environmental problems or give people a chance to experience some of the many marvelous natural spaces in this beautiful province.
