Earth Day London activities wrap up today in the Forest City.
The 23rd edition of Earth Day London is focusing on the planting of native trees and wildlife shrubs.
The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority along with volunteers, are planting 1,500 trees and wildlife shrubs along river corridors in the City. Earth Day activities will be taking place in Julien Park between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Steve Sauder with the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority told AM980 there’s lots of ways to help the environment today, and everyday.
“Whether it’s plant a tree or think about water conservation or energy conservation around the home or planting native species in your own yard, there’s lots of things we can do,” he says. “Alternative transportation, biking, walking, all things that are healthy for ourselves and healthy for the planet.”
