Earth Day at Weoley Castle 2024

Happy Earth Day!

Tonia Clark, BTP Chair, Lawrence Weston our newest Trustee, and Julianne Statham, Trustee for Treemembrance, attended the Earth Day celebrations (and Earth Month throughout April) at Weoley Castle again this year, on Saturday 20th April (for Earth Day on 22nd April).

To celebrate Earth Month and Day, many groups and activists from in and around Birmingham attended the celebration in Weoley Castle Square, to draw attention the importance of our planet, with a focus on removing plastics this year. Do you have any tips on reusing or recycling plastics in your household?

The weather was rather lovely, and was made brighter by extra helping hands belonging to Rachel, one of our urban forest volunteers! We talked to many people about what we do at BTP, encouraging people to become part of their urban forest, as well as many educational leaflets and display items. We want to thank the organisers at Weoley Castle for organising another great Earth Day celebration!
