Earth Day 2017 was a blast! We had a great day of outdoor recreation, fun times at the farm, some excellent live entertainment, green transportation, and nature-based learning– all in the name of celebrating our planet. We'd like to extend a big FortWhyte Alive thank you to:
- Our volunteers for all of your time and efforts in making this event possible. Happy National Volunteer Week!
- Our media and entertainment stage partners CBC Manitoba, who brought out their awesome virtual reality bison experience, as well as Kids' CBC's Scout, Al Simmons, MTYP, and Rob Malo, all of whom kept us entertained throughout the day. Big thanks to John Sauder for bringing the sunshine, blue skies, and interactive weather demos, all while hosting the main stage!
- Everyone who supported our first ever FortWhyte Alive Earth Day 50/50 Raffle. Congrats to Elaine S. who took home the big prize, $699!
- All of our amazing exhibitors at FortWhyte Alive and the FortWhyte Farms mini market – big shout out to CAA Manitoba for once again collecting used tires and car batteries, and to Mother Earth Recycling for picking up e-waste!
- Our new FortWhyte Alive Members, as well as those who renewed their memberships this Earth Day -- thank you for supporting FortWhyte's environmental education initiatives!
Finally, thanks to all of you that came out to take some time out to honour and appreciate this incredible planet we are so lucky to call home. Let's make Earth Day, every day.
