​Earth Day Windsor Essex 2022

Friday, April 22, 2022, marks the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day. First celebrated in 1970, it now includes events in more than 193 countries. While recent celebrations were held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions, 2022 will retain the popular online activities as well as a return to our in-person event.

Virtual Scavenger Hunt

Thanks to our partnership with Essex-Windsor Solid Waste Authority (EWSWA), residents will again be able to use the GooseChase app to participate in an educational, inspirational and exciting activity! Each day between April 17 and 30, the app will feature unique missions on environmental themes, including biodiversity, waste diversion, climate change, active transportation, wastewater and the Detroit River. These missions will help us to discover local actions to invest in a healthy, sustainable Windsor-Essex, all from the safety of your home, backyard or neighbourhood, and they can all be completed at your own pace.  

In-Person Event

Earth day will once again be held at Malden Park on Sunday, April 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature exhibitors, vendors, and activities to help inspire and guide us to "Invest in Our Planet."

Please join us online and in person. We hope to see you there!
