Water to Earth Month 2024 starts soon!

The RDN’s Drinking Water and Watershed Protection (DWWP) Program has been hosting Water to Earth Month events with community partners for the last 8 years. Water to Earth Month is an activity-packed, month-long celebration that takes place between World Water Day on March 22 and Earth Day on April 22. Its aim is to actively engage the community to build awareness about local water resources and environmental stewardship.

This year we wrap up our Water to Earth month on April 20 from 11am-3pm with a celebration event at Bowen Park featuring vendors and information booths from around the community as well as interactive workshops and nature walks!
