The Earth Ambassador Program fosters partnerships between businesses/corporations and the Edmonton and Area Land Trust to build support for local nature conservation, which benefits the community, residents, wildlife, and the environment.
Businesses can participate between March 1 – May 12, in honour of Earth Hour or Earth Day if they wish, by donating a portion of proceeds from sales or hosting a staff fundraiser (i.e. 50/50 draw, exercise class, games, etc.). In return, your business will be featured on EALT’s social media several times, in our Conservation Connections Newsletter, and much more. Click here to view all of the benefits and exciting details.
Register your business to be an Earth Ambassador today, for a free consultation to find out how you can engage new clientele and/or create purposeful employee engagement, while supporting local nature. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and say “I want to be an Earth Ambassador” to get started.
Individuals can participate by watching our Events page and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn) and supporting special events hosted by our local businesses. You can also help by sharing this information with your place of employment to suggest participation, to make a difference for local nature.
One exemplary Earth Ambassador will be chosen by EALT’s Board of Directors’ Earth Ambassador Committee to receive the Earth Ambassador Award, presented on World Environment Day, June 5, 2019. The unique Earth Ambassador Award is handcrafted with care by one of EALT’s talented volunteers, Jamie McQuarrie. Jamie designed and builds this gorgeous intarsia mosaic using several different types of wood, such as aspen, cherry, birch, and walnut, to create the colour variances. It’s the only award of its kind, awarding environmental excellence to Edmonton and area businesses.
