Earth Day Activities in Ottawa Make This a Really Good Friday (video)


Concidentally, this year, Earth Day and Good Friday fall on the same day. Today! That means we're already pretty ahead of the game in terms of reducing consumption today, since many stores and businesses will be closed... :)

If you're trying to find something to do with the kids in honour of Earth Day and you're in Ottawa, the Museum of Nature has free admission. They are also hosting a special Earth Day Kids' Concert and Award show from 1:30-2:30, recognizing local children who have won Earth Day contests.

They also have lots of great exhibits promoting the importance of taking care of Mother Nature. It's a great excuse for us to take hubby to the museum, since he hasn't been there since the renovation.

And if today you've got other plans, this Saturday and Sunday, you can check out the Ottawa ECO Expo at the RA Centre on Riverside for lots of great green ideas.

The EPA site also has a great global map showing Earth Day activities around the world. A great tool for showing your kids that people all over the earth take conservation seriously.
