Scope and content

Series contains audio reels from the CKDU radio 88.1 program Earth Action. This program is a weekly environmental radio show by the Ecology Action Centre, established in 1971 Nova Scotia after a course held at Dalhousie University called Living Ecology. The program began in 1987, and was a 15 minute show hosted every Monday at 5:30PM consisting of interviews, a feature called “Lets Clean It Up,” (which focused generally around recycling with the immediate goal of increasing individual awareness about dangerous household hazardous waste), and environmental news. The original team consisted of Robert Pross, engineer; Leslie Shaw, Wayne Hall, Cristina Pekarik, Liz and Debrah Westerburg.
