Earth Day

Earth Day is a worldwide day of environmental activism that has been celebrated annually on April 22 since 1970. To celebrate our successes to date and raise awareness for how our community can contribute to ongoing environmental initiatives, this year the City of Brantford is hosting a community wide clean up event, tree giveaway for residents, and continuing the important conversation around Climate Change.
