With the largest civic observance in the world, Earth Day attracts over 1 billion people yearly who are dedicated to furthering climate action.
The Fernie Heritage Library are some of those people, and invite you to join in and show your love for the town you love to visit! This event will be held the day following Earth Day, Saturday 23rd.
Last year Fernie Heritage Library fulfilled their goal to build an eyesore of trash in the parking lot! It’s time to do it all again for 2022 with support from Elk Valley Wildsight, Fernie Home Hardware, Teck, Patti’s Party Rentals, and DJ Jay Ray.
