BURLINGTONGREEN INVITES THE COMMUNITY TO CLEAN UP GREEN UP!

Burlington, ON – BurlingtonGreen will host their annual Community Clean Up event between April 22nd and April 28th, 2019. The impactful take action event has become Burlington’s largest volunteer participation opportunity, and this year’s event promises to be one of the biggest and best yet.

“This will be the 9th Community Clean Up event we have hosted with the City, with more than 90,000 people to date, coming together to clean up litter from Burlington’s parks, streams and neighbourhoods. The Green Up tree planting event in May is hugely popular, providing a fun, rewarding, hands-on opportunity for people of all ages to beautify the City while improving local biodiversity, said Executive Director, Amy Schnurr.

About the Clean Up

The whole community is invited to participate during the week of April 22 – 28. All groups are invited to snap a photo of their team in action and send it to BurlingtonGreen to post on the Green Wall of Fame webpage.

All groups that register for the Clean Up will receive free clean-up supplies if needed. As an opportunity to showcase local businesses going green, all registered businesses will have their website posted at burlingtongreen.org.

About the Green Up

BurlingtonGreen and the City of Burlington will host a tree planting event at Brant Hills Park on Saturday, May 4, 2019. The Green Up is a fun and rewarding opportunity for Burlington residents to plant trees and help grow our urban tree canopy.

BURLINGTONGREEN EXPLORES OUR CONNECTIONS TO TREES WITH ‘CALL OF THE FOREST’

Burlington, ON – On Wednesday, October 17th, BurlingtonGreen, in partnership with Burlington Central Library and Halton Green Screens, will present ‘Call of the Forest’, the fourth of five acclaimed films in their 2018 Eco-Film Festival series.

‘Call of The Forest – The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees’ is a documentary featuring scientist and acclaimed author Diana Beresford-Kroeger. The film follows Diana as she investigates our profound biological and spiritual connection to forests. Her
global journey explores the science, folklore, and restoration challenges of this essential eco-system.

“Diana Beresford-Kroeger and I share a dream. We want people to see the forest and the trees, and the wildlife abounding in wild environments, in fine detail. We want native species to be valued and cultivated one by one for the special place they have
in the deep history of the land.” -E. O. Wilson, Harvard entomologist, conservationist and father of modern environmentalism
