Our fantastic volunteers Paul and Bernice organized our first time at the Calgary Public Library’s Ecopalooza. It was a spectacularly beautiful day; warm and sunny. We attracted a wonderfully diverse crowd, roughly 125 people came to our table. Especially the younger visitors were enthusiastic and interested in our display. Bernice had created two environmental Snakes ‘n Ladders games that found a lot of fans. Visit us at one of our next events to let your inner child go wild!
