Please Be There!

A Brief Note on this from Doug Draper

Posted April 20h, 2022 on Niagara At Large

As overwhelming as issues like climate change or some of the more serious pollution problems still plaguing the Great Lakes may seem, we must never stop believing that there are things that each and every one of us can do to help heal this one and only planet we all call home.

On the very first Earth Day in April 1970, I held up a sign at a rally I attended with some of my high school classmates that read; “If You Aren’t Part of the Solution, You Are Part of the Pollution.” On this Earth Week, as we approach the 52nd Earth Day this coming Friday, April 22nd, I believe that the message on that sign is just as relevant today as it was then. And in that spirit, there are events we can attend this Earth Week with our fellow citizens in Niagara. One of them, organized by a group of citizen volunteers known as the St. Catharines Environmental Alliance, will take place this Friday, April 22nd (a rescheduled date due to rain forecasts for the original date, April 21st)  in the morning at Mountain Locks Park in south St. Catharines.

For more details on the event and when it will take place, see the poster immediately below –

  1. Today, I saw students picking up garbage on Niagara Street just north of Lester B Peasron Park. They were probably from Laura Secord Secondary School. They were doing a great job and having a wonderful time but just for the day. Why not have a monthly cleanup day? Everybody wins on so many levels.
