Vancity Member Day at Science World

Comments 91 by Rebecca Bollwitt

This year’s Vancity Member Day falls in the middle of Green Month at Science World, a month of exhibits highlighting sustainability activities in our community.


Science World’s Green Month, which runs from Tuesday, April 22nd to Wednesday, May 21st, features exhibits and activities that celebrate environmental awareness and sustainability. For Green Month, Vancity is cowpowering the lights on Science World’s dome and is also offering tours of its rooftop Skygarden on Vancity Member Day. The Skygarden allowed Vancity to donate 102 pounds of vegetables in 2012 to the Potluck Cafe Society, providing food to low-income residents in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

Vancity Member Day at Science World

What: Members of Vancity and a guest can explore Science World on Vancity Member Day for half off the regular admission price in celebration of Green Month.

Who: Vancity members can bring a guest to explore Science World on Vancity Member Day for half off the regular admission price.

Why Vancity wants to improve the well-being of their members and their communities, which includes environmental sustainability. Green Month at Science World is an opportunity for everyone to learn more about creating a sustainable future in a fun and interactive way.
