Environmental Action Day 

Environmental Action Day will bring artists, environmentalists and the public together to celebrate the environment and promote the need for local action.

First, come take part in a community cleanup of Strathcona Park and the Rideau River. Teams will be guided throughout the park to help remove and safely dispose of waste from the nature path in the park and the banks along the river. 

Next, stroll through our Eco Fair where you will be able to see demonstrations and gain key tips and take-aways from Ottawa’s leading environmental groups. 

Finally, finish your day enjoying a free performance of Odyssey Theatre’s production of Lysistrata and the Temple of Gaia, performed live at our theatre in Strathcona Park following the Eco Fair.
