Windsor-Essex Virtual Earth Day 2021
We welcome you to to participate in the very first VIRTUAL Earth Day Scavenger Hunt in Windsor Essex! The City of Windsor, Essex Windsor Solid Waste Authority and Essex Region Conservation has teamed up with the GooseChase App to combine the tried and true ‘scavenger hunt’ with the latest in smartphone technology to create one of the most exciting activities out there!
Join us to discover local actions that contribute to a healthy, sustainable Windsor-Essex, all from the safety of your home, backyard, or neighbourhood.
Learn more through fun activity “missions” on environmental themes, including waste diversion, biodiversity, climate change, active transportation, wastewater, and the Detroit River to name a few.
We have over 50 missions for all ages to complete! It’s as easy as downloading the app, log into GooseChase and joining our game – “Windsor-Essex Virtual Earth Day 2021!
Each day between April 12 and April 25, we will be releasing five to six environmental “missions” to be completed at your own pace. However, some “missions” may require some planning, so check back here after April 8 to make note of those special “missions”!
Of course, we can’t forget our community partners, some of which have been part of the local Earth Day activities for decades. Several “missions” you’ll have the chance to complete are brought to you from these very community partners.
Stay tuned for more details as they become finalized.
