Earth Day 2021 - Natural Solutions to Climate Change
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for this FREE expo-style event where ecologically minded organizations from around the community will come together for hands-on activities teaching participants how they can be part of a natural solution to climate change. Strong and diverse pollinator populations, such as bees, butterflies, moths, ants, birds, and bats are a vital part of that solution, helping plants reproduce and sequester carbon in the soil, thereby reducing environmental stress that would otherwise contribute to rising global temperatures. Pollinators are also responsible for approximately 70% of agricultural production, and due to a multitude of factors, they're on the decline, reducing the resiliency of our food system. Planting native flowering species in and around your neighborhood is one of the easiest ways you can provide habitat for pollinators, giving them the food, shelter, and water they need to thrive. Visit each station to learn about a different pollinator, seed take-home trays full of flowering species they love to eat, and contribute to a community mural that shows we stand in solidarity with our silent and vital ecosystem partners! There will be a raffle with prizes donated from businesses around Hamilton.
