BEA and Partners to Deliver Summer Programming

Post Author: Cindy Evans

This summer, with financial support from TRCA’s “Building a Healthy and Connected Bramalea” project, the BEA is providing 3 programs to the residents of Brampton – specifically aimed at engaging residents living in the E,F and K sections of Bramalea. This area has been highlighted as part of TRCA’s Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP). The objective of Bramalea SNAP is to foster neighbourhood revitalization that integrates local community interests and sustainability objectives under the overarching theme of working together for a green, healthy, and welcoming Bramalea SNAP neighbourhood.

In collaboration with Bramalea Secondary School, PCHS and the Brampton Bike Hub, the BEA is providing students with free bike repairs during 2 pop-up sessions, one in June and one in September.  Students are also encouraged to volunteer at Different Spokes, Brampton’s downtown bike coop store, while support and encouragement is provided from PCHS’s NEW WAVE program

On Wednesday evenings throughout the month of July, Family Cycling Clinics will be held behind Earnscliffe Senior Public School.  The aim is to encourage families to learn to ride safely in their community and to use the bicycle as an enjoyable, economical, healthy and environmentally friendly means of transportation.  

The third program encourages residents to observe nature up close while learning to draw.  Three nature journaling sessions will be held at Earnscliffe Park facilitated by a local artist and educator.  In addition to developing artistic skill, participants will have the opportunity to learn to identify native, non-native and invasive species in our parks that we hope will foster a desire to participate in other park initiatives.
