Earth Day, celebrated on April 22nd each year, is a key time to unite communities and make a positive impact on the environment. Many municipalities across Canada are being proactive and taking bold steps to be part of the ecological transition in order to create a healthier environment for their citizens. The Town of Bracebridge is proud once again to participate in Earth Day to combat climate change and plan for a sustainable future.

“Earth Day is an annual reminder of the importance of taking action to celebrate and protect our fragile earth, not only on April 22nd, but every day,” said Mayor Graydon Smith. “As we face environmental challenges, it will be communities that take a leading role in idea-sharing and problem-solving in driving the ecological transition.”

In celebration of Earth Day, the Town is participating in the Annual Compost Giveaway on Friday, April 22, 2022. FREE compost will be available to Bracebridge residents at Gostick Park, located at 51 Sellens Avenue, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The Town, along with the other local area municipalities, is also partnering with the District Municipality of Muskoka’s Clean Muskoka Together initiative. This year-round, Muskoka-wide community litter clean-up program provides volunteers with all the tools they need to help keep Muskoka beautiful such as gloves, recycling bags and specially marked garbage bags.

On July 7, 2021, Town Council declared a climate emergency and directed the development of a climate action plan that will guide Bracebridge in implementing future climate adaptation and mitigation measures so that our town will be well-positioned for a sustainable future.

Earth Day is an event dedicated to awareness about the various environmental challenges that face our planet. By saving water and energy, reducing pollution, recycling, and protecting our animals, trees and plants, we are making our world a happier and healthier place to live.
