We are sorry but we now have to postpone our Earth Day in Hope to another day to be announced.

Rescheduled | Hope, BC

 

This year, Earth Day is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the founding of Earth Day. We, here in the Upper Fraser Valley  living in Hope Cascades and Canyons, are particularly blessed with an unequalled environment considering our fresh air, clean water, pristine wilderness and beautiful mountains surrounding our home.

About Earth Day Meetups

This is the first official registered event for  “Earth Day” participation in Hope, BC. We are hoping to have local businesses represented showing their activities in reducing global warming or other envionmental enhancement considerations. We will be having  short “ride- alongs” from the venue  in all-electric (BEV) vehicles of all makes and designs. We are encouraging young people to come and describe their “environmental enhancing” projects. We will encourage BC Hydro to participate as well as recycle companies, fresh water bottle distributers and all activities pertaining to air and water conservation and waste recycle activities by local government and private entrepreneurs.
