Kickoff to Spring Cleanup this Weekend
Prince George, B.C. – Earth Day will be marked with a celebration at the Prince George Farmers’ Market this Saturday.
Starting at 9:30 a.m., it will start with the unveiling of ‘The Salmon Beauty’ mural, commissioned by local artist Clayton Gauthier who says the mural was inspired by the importance of food security.
“The Salmon represents the most important source of food security for the traditional people of this territory even to this day. They are the connection to our lands that many powerful animals depend on.”
In addition to the unveiling of the mural, the event – organized by Downtown Prince George and its partner groups – serves as the kick-off to Spring Clean-up Week.
Attendees will be able to register for Spring Clean-up (scheduled for Sunday, April 30) from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will also be live music, vendors, and kids’ crafts.
Also on Saturday, London Drugs will be hosting an environmentally friendly recycling event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Parkwood Place.
Residents are encouraged to bring their old electronics and small appliances for recycling including TVs, VCRs, computers, small appliances (purchased at London Drugs), Styrofoam, cell phones, alkaline batteries and compact fluorescent bulbs.
