Earth Day 2017 Student Contest

In recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday, we’re asking students to envision what they want our environment to look like in the next 150 years. We’re inviting students to tell us what they want for the future of our ecosystems. This contest asks students to dream big on what could or should be done! Whether it’s solar panels on every home, or forests on every street, we want to hear their vision for the environment well into the future!

Earth Day Community Tree Planting

April is Earth Month, and the Essex Region Conservation and the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup are inviting everyone to join us on Sunday, April 23, 2017 from 10am – Noon to help plant more than 2,000 native trees and shrubs in the City of Windsor. While we have shovels to share, you may wish to consider bringing your own to this free event!
