Residents can raft Nanaimo River Estuary, tour the watershed or watch a flick in a ‘dive-in’ theatre, during Water to Earth Month this spring.
The City of Nanaimo, along with the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Team WaterSmart and other community groups, are hosting Water to Earth Month, a celebration of World Water Day and Earth Day.
Residents are invited to learn more about the environment and celebrate watersheds that support the Nanaimo region with activities like land and water tours, film nights and educational events offered in March and April, according to a city press release.
“It is important to remember how we are all connected, from the clean water we drink to the natural environment that surrounds us,” said Deb Beck, city recreation coordinator in the release. “We need to be mindful of protecting the balance of these ecosystems.”
A full list of events, March 10-April 22, can be found on the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Team WaterSmart page at www.getinvolved.rdn.ca/team-watersmart/key_dates.
