Plant a seed, save a bee was our craft this year for Family Day. In total, 260 children participated by decorating a planter and planting some wildflower seeds. The children are encouraged to plant their seedlings outside in their gardens once the warm weather arrives.
The community of Halton Hills developed an Active Living Strategy to increase the physical activity levels of people who live, work and play in Halton Hills. The development of the strategy responds to the fact that Canadians generally do not meet the national daily physical activity guidelines and are not maximizing the resultant health benefits. The Strategy outlines 46 Recommended Actions over a five-year timeframe to improve the activity-friendliness in the Town of Halton Hills. A two-year implementation plan has been created to start the process and the initiative has been branded “Active Easy”.
Increase the quality and availability of new active opportunities by building capacity, developing partnerships and sharing best practices through the Active Easy Network.
Increase participation in active living by providing the OPEN STREET opportunities that will allow individuals and families to engage in casual, no cost physical activity.
Remove barriers and encourage low income families to play by providing free Activity Kits.
Enhance engagement with families with children by providing active toys at local parks.
Enhance trail usage by providing activity features along trails.
Create an outreach strategy to engage the rural community in identifying barriers and potential solutions to inactivity.
Provide Physical Literacy training to the Network partners and volunteers.
Profile and celebrate residents being active through the “Caught Being Active” campaign delivered by volunteer Ambassadors.
Share successes with the community through local and social media.
