What better way to celebrate Planet Earth than a day at FortWhyte Alive? Join us Sunday, April 26th to explore the outdoors, embrace green transportation, and celebrate by learning about actions you can take toward more sustainable living.
Did we mention that admission is free all day?
Enjoy a full day of family-friendly fun and experience the best of what FortWhyte Alive has to offer. Take in a Bison Safari or any one of the classic FortWhyte Alive activities, like bannock roasts, archery, orienteering, geocaching, voyageur canoe rides, dipnetting and interpretive hikes.
For those looking to celebrate, there will be carnival games, puppet shows, face painting, and live performances by Juno-nominated performer Aaron Burnett. New this year, join Art City in creating a natural masterpiece that will be displayed permanently at FortWhyte Alive.
FortWhyte Farms will be showcasing sustainable urban agriculture and offering an afternoon of homesteading demos, farm tours and fun activities like farm animal face painting.
For those eager to learn more about environmental sustainability in our province, there will be hands-on workshops and services provided by a number of organizations and other special guests, including CBC Manitoba Meteorologist John Sauder, who will be on-site to answer all of your tough weather questions from 12-2 pm. Earth Day at FortWhyte Alive is your chance to recycle those old batteries, tires, and consumer electronics -- and purchase a backyard composter while you’re at it! And, as a special Earth Day-only offer, those looking to live sustainably all year-round can enjoy FortWhyte Alive Memberships at 25% off.
In honour of Earth Day, a host of sustainable transportation options will be on offer, such as free Winnipeg Transit service and guided group bike rides with Bike Winnipeg departing from designated sites around Winnipeg. As always, all attendees that walk, roll, or ride to FortWhyte Alive will be rewarded for making sustainable choices and entered to win a special prize.
