NCES has three great events planned for Earth Day


Earth Day — Tuesday, April 22, just in case you’ve forgotten — is rapidly approaching and the North Columbia Environmental Society has created three great events to mark this global celebration of the planet: a kids poster contest, a nature walk and a film night.

The poster contest is for kids in grades K through Seven. The theme is: What will Revelstoke, the greenest little city in BC, look like in 20 years?  This contest is sponsored by the NCES and Universal Footwear. Poster winners will be displayed at Universal Footwear and announced at Earth Day assemblies at local schools on April 22. For more information please send an e-mail to

The Nature Walk will be held on Earth Day on the Hemlock Groove Trail from 3:30 to 4:30 pm. Meet at the MacPherson ski area parking lot. Verena Blasy from Parks Canada will lead the hike and be on hand to give lots of fun information about the sights that will be seen along the way. Bring water, but snacks will be provided. Please check or the NCES Facebook page before heading out in case there is a venue change due to snow on the trail. For more information please click here to view the poster.

The film night will be held that evening at the Community Centre starting at 6:30 pm. The Best of the Best Environmental Film Shorts is appropriate for all ages. The films range from one to seven minutes in length. Inspiring and Informative is the theme of the evening. Films range from one minute to seven minutes and are appropriate for all ages. Families are encouraged to attend. For more information please click here to view the poster.
