“TD is proud to be the presenting sponsor of Party for the Planet - B.C.’s largest Earth Day celebration - for almost a decade,” said Andy Cribb, Senior Vice President, TD Bank Group. “TD has been committed to giving back to Surrey, through events like the annual TD Tree Days and through a contribution to the TD Nature Play area at Forsyth Park in Surrey City Centre. We look forward to celebrating Earth Day with the community.”

New to Civic Plaza, the event will feature an educational speaker series located in the Live Green World where guests can learn about strategies and daily practices to live sustainably, a Nature Walk on University Drive activated by Surrey Parks and the Dogwood Dance Tent featuring giveaways and dance performances.
