EARTH DAY 2002
On Wednesday, April 24th Vanier celebrated this year's Earth Day with a whole slate of activities and presentations. Students present availed themselves of an inexpensive Barbecue lunch, Bake Sale, Craft Sale and a Re-use Sale. As well, a team of dedicated students and staff roamed the college campus picking up litter and generally doing their bit to beautify the college. We invite you to view some photos taken that day.
A display in the F200 Carrefour highlighted wildlife indigenous to Canada. Helen Garland, Vanier Eco-Tech student, let people handle a non-venomous (obviously!) Black Rat snake.
These two fearless Vanier students were up to the challenge.
This gentleman was detailing concerns of species such as the frog and a turtle in
the two aquariums to his left. All above animals were generously loaned by the
Ecomuseum, a non-profit wildlife observation centre in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue.
All right! 2 hot dogs and a drink for $1.50. Can't go wrong with that.
Perhaps some organic desserts to top off your lunch?
An Eco Craft sale wooed passers-by with gifts for
that environmentally-aware person on your list.
Participants at this table didn't just offer info on trees,
they were also giving away free tree-planting kits!
These fellows were manning a display detailing society's immense wastage of water.
This booth was run by a Science teacher who had a collection of live bugs.
Here's a close-up of one of his specimens.
This table focused on endangered species of our own forests.
Music for the occasion was again provided by the good folks from CKVR.
