Eco Day

Cornwall, Ontario

Saturday, August 7, 2021 (10 AM - 2 PM)

Saturday, August 7 is Eco Day in Cornwall – an opportunity to learn from local organizations and explore the natural world in your neighbourhood. Discover exciting displays across our community from 10 AM to 2 PM:

  • Stop by the pop-up shops on Pitt Street to chat with City of Cornwall and Raisin Region Conservation Authority staff about water conservation, pollinators, and steps you can take at home to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Seeds are being given away while supplies last!
  • The Cornwall Public Library will feature environmental resources – stop in, and don’t forget your library card (or ask staff how to register for one)!
  • Not one, not two, but four booths will be set up at the River Institute at 2 St. Lawrence Drive. Learn about species in our river, reducing our use of paper, the remedial action plan, and contamination and bioaccumulation in the food chain.
  • Transition Cornwall + volunteers are providing mini tours of must-see locations: the Tiny Forest outside the Cornwall Public Library, the Edible Garden behind the Lions Club Bandshell in Lamoureux Park, and the Arboretum in Lamoureux Park.
  • Join the Environmental and Climate Change Committee at the clock tower for a map-mocracy event about important eco topics in our community.
  • Wondering how you can easily swap out disposable household items for reusable ones? The Local Fill at 1515 Pitt Street can help!

Take your Eco Day adventure to the next level by biking or hopping on Cornwall Transit to get from one activity to the next. The City of Cornwall and the Raisin Region Conservation Authority are partners in organizing this free event – everyone is welcome!
