Sooke Earth Day Celebrations 2023

Celebrate with us and make a difference in Sooke. It’s in our nature! 
By re-thinking how we move, what kind of buildings we live and work in, where our energy comes from and how we interact with each other and in our community, we can become richer than we ever thought possible.
Sooke is striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2050.
By inherently applying consideration for the environment, we will enhance the quality of life in Sooke – for generations to come. It will take all of us to reach this target.
During Earth Week, numerous events and activities will provide opportunities for the community to work collaboratively as stewards of the lands and make a difference –  together.

Get FireSmart! Sooke Information Session

Join us for a FREE fire education session specific to living in the Sooke region!

Living in a fire-prone ecosystem means we must implement wildfire mitigation strategies to reduce our wildfire risk and protect our community here in Sooke. Fires on the coast can be vigorous, especially in steep/difficult terrain and/or drought-stricken areas. Lightning storms and water shortages are becoming more common during the summer months and impact both fire behaviour and response operations on the coast.

Learn more about how you can help increase our community resiliency to wildfire. Topics include:

  • Sooke’s wildfire risk;
  • Fire behaviour;
  • Wildland urban interface zone;
  • FireSmart principles, and;
  • How to protect your home and community.

Presented by Ashlene Aktarian, FireSmart Coordinator, District of Sooke.
