World Fisheries Trust and Esquimalt Parks and Recreation are hosting an Oceans Day Festival at Esquimalt Gorge Park on Sunday, June 3rd 2012 from 12:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
World Fisheries Trust, a local NGO that delivers environmental education and conservation programs both locally and internationally, is working in collaboration with Esquimalt Parks and Recreation to join hundreds of other educators, conservation organizations, stewardship groups and thousands of individuals around the world to celebrate our shared ocean.
This year's Oceans Day theme is "Youth - the Next Wave for Change", and we are promoting and coordinating activities worldwide with a focus on getting youth involved in conserving the world's oceans. As such, our Oceans Day Festival will include activities such as live music, crafts, food, face painting, canoe tours of the Gorge, touch tanks with local marine life, interpretive walks, and educational and interactive displays and models among other activities.
Admission to the festival is absolutely free.
