Dear AWARE friends & supporters, we’ve got a great April 7 May planned and hope you can join us:
Tuesday April 24th
Creekbread Fundraiser for the AWARE Kids Nature Club. Join us to combine two fabulous activities – raising funds and eating pizza! A portion of funds from all pizzas sold between 5pm and 9pm will be donated to AWARE and there are raffle prizes up for grabs.
Sunday April 29th
AWARE Kids Nature Club at Whistler Library, 10am – 11:30am. These fun and activity based monthly sessions get kids learning about all things environmental. This month’s focus is loosely based around the celebration of last weekend’s Earth Day. The sessions are intended for ages 5-12 and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
Wednesday May 2nd
AWARE Public Meeting featuring the Whistler Centre for Sustainability, 6pm – 8pm. This meeting sees the return of AWARE’s public meeting thanks to an offer from the Whistler Museum to provide a long-term venue. As well as an update from AWARE the Centre will be presenting on the importance of sustainability planning in Whistler and other communities. The meeting will be informal and there will be lots of opportunity for open discussion and asking questions.
Green Drinks at Blacks Pub, 8pm – 10pm. This monthly informal get together allows for discussion of all things green over free Granville Island Beer and appies. Discussions can continue from the public meeting and spill into other topics such as the proposed WhistlerU development on the Zen upland areas and wider ranging issues such as Enbridge pipelines, national policy changes and worldwide events!
Saturday May 5th
Is ‘Pitch In Day’. This is the day when you see the luminous vest lining the streets as volunteers from various community groups get stuck in to cleaning up the streets of Whistler now the snow has melted. AWARE focuses on areas around Nesters and White Gold and the more the merrier. If you would like to get involved we will be meeting outside Nesters Market at 8:30am. Bags and vests will be provided, we will have gloves also but if you have some work gloves that fit and you are comfortable using we would recommend bringing those along. Funds from recycling and collection are donated to AWARE, so this is a fun way to be outdoors and raise funds.
