Welcome to the 2018 Conservation Educators
Between the months of May and September, the Town of Okotoks embarks on a campaign of conservation awareness in our community. Four Conservation Educators visit approximately 2,000 households, educating the community on water and energy conservation and waste management. Watch for the Town’s 2018 Summer Conservation Educators in the community and your neighbourhood throughout the summer months, where they will be providing information and services to community members.
The Educators also attend all summer community events and provide conservation presentations to children at schools and summer day camps. The team works closely with several Town Business Centres, including Parks, Resource Recovery and Community Programs as well as EPCOR Water Services to coordinate water, waste and energy education initiatives.
From May through August, they will be visiting households and businesses to talk with residents and business owners about:
- Industrial, Commercial, Institutional (ICI) 3-stream waste diversion program for businesses
- Water conservation, the Residential Water Rebate Program and the revised watering schedule
- Tips on reducing water and energy use as well as common recycling and composting mistakes
Residents are welcome to schedule a visit or book the Conservation Educators to speak to a community group about the importance of conservation and how each person can assist in reducing waste. Educators will be visiting residences at the following days and times:
- Tuesday - Saturday,10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
