SSCAS to participate in the celebration of community and environment.

Whistler- May 29, 2013 – On  June 8th, 2013 from 11 am to 4 pm  Down to Earth: Whistler EnviroFest will be taking place in Olympic Plaza, Whistler. It is an interactive family friendly event offering games, crafts, interactive displays, music, yoga and art. The aim is to engage people of all ages, and cultivate a greater understanding of the intersection between community and environment. Topics include green building, sustainable transportation, composting, upcycling, sustainable tourism, protecting air quality, water conservation, restoration, natural products, yoga, native species, and local food. Each topic will be explored through hands-on activities delivered by local businesses and organizations; each one of which contributes to a vibrant community and healthy environment.

“The Sea to Sky Clean Air Society is looking forward to hosting a booth and promoting Clean Air Day (June 5) and sustainable transportation options through a fun game and electric scooter demonstration in partnership with BC Transit and Greenwit Technologies;” said Executive Director and event coordinator, Kim Slater . “SSCAS will also be announcing the prize winners for Bike to Work Week, so we’re expecting quite a bit of traffic at our station.”

EnviroFest is offered by the Resort Municipality of Whistler and is in its eleventh year. A $5 optional donation from attendees will be split between the participating non-profits.

Wrapping up EnviroFest is the Down to Earth Dinner and Dialogue on Sunday June 9. Beginning at 4 pm, the film: Edible City: Grow the Revolution will be screened at the Whistler Museum. It will be followed by a 4-course, seasonally inspired meal featuring local fare at Alta Bistro at 6 pm. Tickets for the film and dinner are $35 and are available exclusively online at EventBrite: www.eventbrite.ca/event/6853421769/efblike. There are just 30 tickets and they are going fast!
