Bruce Power and the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre celebrate Earth Week with eco-themed program for students

Bruce Power is excited to partner once again with the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre to offer a virtual Earth Week program for students.

This year’s Earth Week theme is Planet vs. Plastic, and the museum will be offering two video presentations prepared by guest experts, where students will learn about how plastics impact local habitats and biodiversity, and what we can do to help.

“Bruce Power is proud to partner with the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre to support Earth Week programs and raise awareness about the importance of protecting and conserving biodiversity,” said Danielle LaCroix, Senior Director, Environment, Sustainability and Net Zero.

“Bruce Power is home to a diverse natural environment that contains a variety of species of plants and wildlife. The protection of these species and the habitats that support them is a priority for our organization and we are committed to environmental stewardship both on site and in the community.”

This month, Bruce Power published an official Biodiversity Policy outlining its commitment to the protection of biodiversity on and off site through actions that preserve and enhance natural habitats and ecosystems.

“Earth Week 2024 connects directly to the biodiversity strand of Ontario’s Grade 6 Science and Technology curriculum,” said Lauren Beer, Education and Outreach Co-ordinator at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.

“We are excited to offer two video presentations hosted by the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre and the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation. Students will have an opportunity to learn and explore the importance of our natural environment.”

The videos and activities will go live on April 22 to coincide with Earth Day. Visit the museum’s website to participate:
