Rocca Sisters “Green” Initiatives for Earth Month
“The Earth is an exceptional place. It’s our home, and as such, it deserves more than just one day of celebration!”– National Wildlife Federation
Happy Earth Month! We are very excited to announce that The Rocca Sisters Team will once again be participating in Earth Month over the course of April and early May! We are partnering up with BurlingtonGreen for two fantastic events:
April 22-28 – Clean Up Week: April 22, 2019 is Earth Day, and it kicks off Clean Up Week in Burlington and surrounding area. We will be joining the collective effort to clean up parks, streams, schools, yards and neighbourhoods!
Where? Meet outside Hutch’s on the Beach (280 Van Wagners Beach Road, Hamilton ON)
When? Monday, April 22, 2019 from noon to 3:00 PM
We will have a tent set up giving out Earth Day themed goodies and will supply gloves and bags for the cleanup. High school students who wish to participate can use this event to collect volunteer hours.
We will also be popping into different events throughout the week, so please let us know if you have a clean-up event you’d like us to help out. You can contact us here or by the phone number or email address listed below.
May 4 – Green Up Tree Planting Day: With sponsorship from the City of Burlington, we are pleased to participate in a tree planting event at Brant Hills Park on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for you to help grow our urban tree canopy – we encourage you to get involved.
Refreshments will be available while quantities last.
Be sure to dress for the weather as the event will take place rain or shine. Please wear sturdy shoes or boots s (sturdy soles help when digging with a shovel) – no sandals or flip-flops please! We kindly ask that volunteers bring their own shovels, if you can.
If you would like to register for either of these events, please click here or call us any time at 905-335-4102 for more information on how you can participate, or to suggest other Earth Month themed events in which you would like to see the Rocca Sisters Team participating. Together, we can make our little piece of the earth a cleaner, greener place!
