Forests Ontario Community Tree Planting Weekend http://biodiversityeducation.ca/calendar/?mc_id=124 Thu, 24 Jan 2019 14:13:42 +0000 BEAN-admin The community that plants together, grows together! The annual Community Planting Weekend takes place during the first weekend of May. It brings together families, community members and volunteers to take part in a half-day tree planting activity, promoting local engagement and environmental awareness.

This family-friendly event offers participants the chance to directly support their community in a local reforestation project and learn about the benefits of trees, shade and green urban spaces.

The events are held rain or shine and participants are asked to bring a shovel, gardening gloves and a lot of energy! Forests Ontario and its partners supply the rest – the trees, forestry specialists, mulch and snacks. Appropriate outdoor clothing, sturdy shoes (steel toe if possible), a hat and sunscreen are recommended.

World Water Day http://biodiversityeducation.ca/calendar/?mc_id=121 Wed, 23 Jan 2019 13:37:09 +0000 BEAN-admin

Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.

Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
