Update: For Our Kids and Ecology Action Centre are closely monitoring the wildfires around Halifax and Nova Scotia. We may postpone this event or pivot to an online version. We will try and proceed in some form because we know at times like these, climate conversations with other parents matter even more. Please register to keep updated, even if there’s uncertainty around your attendance.
