Fish releases, parades, school events, film festivals, invasive plant pulls, community gatherings - there are such a variety of people planning to celebrate Earth Day in so many different ways.  What is your favourite event?  Is it a tradition or something new for you?

This year, New Society Publishers is celebrating Earth Day by helping our readers promote their favourite Earth Day events.  Post your event information with a link to the website (if applicable) on  Twitter.  Include @NewSocietyPub and #earthday in your tweet and we will enter you into a draw to win a free New Society book of your choice.

Locally, Gabriolans are invited to attend a a low-tide shoreline walk along False Narrows from Brickyard Beach to Spring Beach, with the Gabriola Lands and Trails Trust. The walk starts at the site of the brickyard that employed Gabriolans from the 1890s to 1952, and follows False Narrows with lovely views of Mudge, Link, De Courcy, and Valdes Islands as it passes shale bluffs, middens, the traditional clam beds of the Snunéymuxw, and South Road farms, ending at the beautifully eroded sandstone cliffs at the south end of Spring Beach.


Or, if you prefer a more activist approach to Earth Day, you can attend Save Our Shores'  The Politics of Oil.  This is a festival of videos, speakers and information to celebrate Earth Day. “Oil tanker and pipeline proposals is the No. 2 issue for most voters going into May’s provincial election.” 3 pm onwards at the Rollo Centre, North Road. No entry fee, but donations welcome.


Maybe you just like to take the family for a picnic in the park.  However you choose to celebrate Earth Day, we would love to hear from you.
