Environmental Action Day is organized by Odyssey Theatre, Ottawa’s premier professional outdoor theatre in Strathcona Park, on the banks of the Rideau River. The event will be held on Sunday, August 5th, 2018 from 10 AM to 2 PM at Strathcona Park. Volunteers will enjoy a day of empowerment on environmental issues and encourage the community to stand up for our environment. We will be starting out by cleaning the park and the Rideau Riverbank. All volunteers will be split into teams that divide and clean up the waste in the park. Afterward, all teams will be invited to take part in an Eco Fair and learn about local environmental groups in Ottawa with demonstrations from the all the groups and finally enjoy a viewing of Lysistrata and the Temple of Gaia, with complimentary tickets for all who participate in the cleanup. So come join our team and help our community! WEBSITE- https://parkpeople.ca/listings/event/environmental-action-day-2/
