How will you celebrate Earth?

“Earth Walk” will begin on Saturday, April 21, at 11:30 a.m.

Earth Walk gives everyone a chance to get out and celebrate your planet.

Want to be part of the biggest Earth Day event to hit Victoria in years? All you have to do is head down to the legislative buildings this weekend.

“Earth Walk” will begin on Saturday, April 21, at 11:30 a.m., with a rally and convergence of eco-groups gathering at the legislature, followed by a walk to Centennial Square and a lively festival with local luminaries. Victoria’s poet laureate Janet Marie Rogers will act as emcee for the event, which is in its 31st year in Victoria and has seen crowds of up to 18,000 people. More are expected this year.

“Earth Day is a global event when we can put aside contemporary practices, which disconnect us from the very foundation that feeds us, supports us, gives us a home, purpose and place,” says Rogers.
