Reduce your environmental impact

If we all take simple steps to reduce our impact on the community, together we can make a big difference.

EnviroFEST

July 28, 2021 at Broadmoor Lake Park from 4 to 7 p.m.

Pick up your passport from any station to start learning about how you can reduce your impact on the Earth and help make Strathcona County an even better place to live! Each booth will feature a different topic area (ex: land, air, water, waste) for you to learn about and complete an activity. Collect all the stamps from each booth to complete your passport and be entered in a draw for a gift basket. There will be a shredding truck for public use in the Salisbury high school parking lot. We can’t wait to see you there!
