From July 2018 to February of 2019, Ontariogreen provided presentations to almost 2,500 students; hosted a tree planting at a community park in Beamsville and a Meet the Trumpeter Swans event in Burlington, conducted an Urban Forest Tour (Oakville) and was asked to be guest speaker at 2 community events. We have another 26 in-class environmental presentations booked for this spring.
From September 2017 to June 2018, we provided 37 free, in-class environmental science presentations, hosted two community tree plantings in Beamsville parks, and conducted an urban forest tour for new immigrants (Oakville). As well I was invited to be the guest speaker at 7 community events. Altogether, during this period our programs involved 2,628 people, mostly elementary students.
Ontariogreen is continuing to spread environmental education across Ontario and is now able to reach new areas, such as Ottawa using Skype.
Help Us Continue Our Environmental
100 in-class environmental educations programs were delivered to 7,000 students in eight Ontario Regions this school year. One community tree planting was held in Beamsville with about 50 native trees and shrubs planted. One Urban Forest Tour for Newcomers was conducted in Oakville.One free public seminar on landscaping and gardening with native plants was held in the Town of Lincoln. Ontariogreen was invited to be a guest speaker at two events.
Getting Newcomers outdoors to enjoy and learn more about our natural spaces is the focus of Ontariogreen's
Urban Forest Tours.
Ontariogreen hosted the Town of Lincoln's first community tree planting in April 2017. There have been three more tree plantings since then in Beamsville parks.
More than 12,600 students in eleven Ontario Regions received in-class environmental education programs from Ontariogreen Conservation Association, a registered charity, during the 2015-2016 school year. This involved 156 presentations. For the first time this year, schools in the Essex, Waterloo and Simcoe regions and as far away as Ottawa invited Ontariogreen’s educators into their classrooms. Also this year, for the first time, Ontariogreen delivered a few presentations via Skype. From Terrific Trees to Restoring Nature, from Beneficial Bugs to Zero Waste, these presentations took global issues and connected them to the communities where the students lived, providing unique, local information that teachers say is difficult to find elsewhere. This school year, Ontariogreen created a new presentation on Creating The Circular Economy and presented it to Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo.
Ontariogreen is actively seeking sponsors for our environmental education programs. Interested individuals and businesses are invited to contact Liz Benneian, manager of Environmental Education at 905-562-3819 or email email@example.com
