Free Conferences

On this open house program, from 10 a.m. in the community room, speakers will come to present residents with alternatives for more environmentally responsible behavior. Among the topics that will be discussed, we will give tips for buying an electric car (it will be possible to try one) and offer a more ecological alternative to lawn. Other advanced topics will be the recovery and reuse of the remaining materials. In addition, the cause of water will be addressed from all angles and Zero Waste will show how in 2022 it is possible to leave no trace in the environment. “We do this kind of event to make the experiences related to environmental choices more realistic […] With practice, people realize it’s not that complicated or expensive,” says Monique Allaire, city councilor and member of the Environmental Advisory Committee.

Knowledgeable Exhibitors

At the same time as the conferences, information booths will be set up in the church to allow visitors to discuss various environmental issues with professionals. By visiting the different exhibitors, visitors will be able to learn how to reduce the cost of their groceries. You can also learn how to reduce greenhouse gas production, take an interactive forest tour or even get a free tree or shower head that allows you to use less water.

Education

According to Monique Allier, member of the Environmental Advisory Committee: “I have been involved in environmental issues for 35 years and have learned a lot. [..] At the base before starting to organize, we must educate the population, make them understand that it is enough to take simple measures for things to develop.”

For this reason, starting at 9 a.m., residents are encouraged to take part in the civic work of cleaning the trench around Lake Maynard. Activities planned as part of Nature Day will take place after the Citizen’s Cleanup, between 10am and 4pm. Remember that the event is free and no registration is required to participate. Citizens of other municipalities are welcome to this event.

The organizing committee is looking for volunteers to complete its team. Please contact the municipality to express your interest. (819) 326-3198
