Earth Day Volunteers will assemble to plant bee-pollinating shrubs and tree-friendly mushrooms at Everett Crowley Park in Southeast Vancouver (Kerr Street at 64th) on Saturday, April 22 – 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The old Kerr Road Dump is now an Eco-destination of how re-purposed land becomes a natural green refuge for people and wildlife, where year-round community reforesting and park stewardship are Earth Day showcases.
Earth Day at Everett Crowley Park offers a wide range of free family-oriented fun including professional visual and performing arts, music, dancing, and interactive Eco-demonstrations, including very special children’s outdoor learning activities – Green guerrilla gardeners most
