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.

VancityMemberDay-ScienceWorld

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.

When: Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 9:30am to 6:00pm

Who: Vancity members can bring a guest to explore Science World on Vancity Member Day for half off the regular admission price. Members will need to present their Vancity MEMBER CARD® debit card or Vancity enviro™ Visa* (or other form of membership verification) at Science World’s Guest Services desk. That’s a savings of $11.25 on adult admission!

Where: Vancity will be onsite throughout the day with fun games and prizes. You can meet some of Vancity’s community partners who will have interactive displays and demonstrations on how they contribute to a greener community.

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.

A total of 15 Vancity community partners will be participating on Vancity Member Day during Green Month at Science World. The partners will be showcasing their work and commitment to the environment and sustainability initiatives throughout Vancouver and the surrounding areas.
