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.

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 will be two more plantings of native trees and shrubs in the fall of 2017 in Beamsville parks.
Ontariogreen is continuing to spread environmental education across Ontario and is now able to reach new areas, such as Ottawa using Skype.
Our Achievements 2016/2017
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. Ontariogreen was able to accomplish three presentations by delivering 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.
The school year, Ontariogreen created a new presentation on Creating The Circular Economy and presented it to Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo. Ontariogreen also added another presentation to its list titled Vegetable Gardening and presented it to a school in Barrie.
Ontariogreen is currently working with the Town of Lincoln on a 2016 fall tree planting.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
