Celebrate Mother Earth and Invest in Our Planet

Cumberland and Colchester Counties – We are approaching an important day in the life of the Cliffs of Fundy Geopark, and in fact of the whole planet. This Friday, April 22nd is Earth Day in Canada and it’s time to celebrate Mother Earth. In fact, the UN General Assembly has designated April 22nd as International Mother Earth Day and acknowledges that it impacts two of the Sustainable Development Goals: #15 Life on Land and #17 Partnerships for the Goals.

Now, more than ever, it is important to acknowledge our position within the dynamic planet where we all live and take action to leave this place a little better than we found it. The theme for Earth Day this year is Invest in our Planet. The world we live in is changing rapidly and we must work together to preserve and protect our environment, our health, our families, and our livelihoods.   Read More >>>
