Earth Rangers has launched a Club Mission to Calgary’s kids called Pedal for the Planet Calgary, with help from Bike Calgary. Adapted for a virtual classroom environment, the mission is designed to also be completed with the help of family and friends.
The Calgary Pedal for the Planet mission will help students (and parents / teachers!) understand how cycling (and walking) can reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Calgary, through education material and when safe to do so, through a week-long bike-a-thon. Resources are available for education and research as well as bike safety tips, checklists for bikes and useful riding tips and tricks. After the mission, the teams will have a chance to provide feedback about what went well, what could be better and also what resources are missing from the school to encourage biking or walking as the primary form of school commute.
About Earth Rangers Missions:
Missions are fun, tangible activities we provide to Earth Rangers Members throughout the year that demonstrate the collective impact of working together towards a common goal. As with all of our programs, Missions always relate back to protecting animals. This includes activities you can do at home and in the community, like recycling batteries, organizing shoreline clean-ups and planting pollinator gardens. Our members complete more than 50,000 Missions every year, making a significant and positive impact on the environment and their local community.
To accept a Mission, members log into their account on the Earth Rangers App and select the Mission they’d like to complete. Once the Mission is completed, they receive points and a virtual Mission badge.
The new Earth Ranger App is also available on Apple and Android.
