Focusing on Biodiversity & Waste Reduction

Pipestone Flyer

    National Environment Week runs from June 2-8 this year and the City of Leduc is hosting two events to get residents interested in, and involved with, green initiatives in our area. The theme for this year's Environmental Week is Spotlight On Biodiversity – Find A Green Stop Near You!

    The official Green Stop for Leduc will be the Open House being held at the LRC from 4-8 pm on June 4&5. In an effort to engage more citizens in environmental awareness  members of the Leduc Environmental Advisory Board will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the City's various environmental initiatives. There will also be snacks and refreshments served at the event as well as entries into prize draws for backyard composters, push mowers, and rain barrels. 

    The City is also holding its first Spring Bird Count from June 2-8. This count will gather data for the City of Leduc that, when partnered with the Christmas Bird Count, will enable the City to create a wild bird database which will help form a master database that can be referenced in future infrastructure and development planning. 

    LEAB is a very active group within the city and they hold several events throughout the year including helping to naturalize urban areas with tree plantings where public is encouraged to participate. Currently LEAB also has a couple of openings on their board and are looking for interested parties to get involved. The Open House would be an ideal event to attend and speak with members about that opportunity.

    For more information about either of these events, or to download a tally sheet to take part in the Spring Bird Count, you can go to the City of Leduc's website at www.leduc.ca or give them a call at 780-980-7177.
