Ontariogreen is a charitable, volunteer-led organization that is dedicated to providing environmental education in classrooms and communities.

Ontariogreen works with community partners to improve knowledge about the environment so people will be able to make decisions that reduce environmental harm and improve biodiversity by saving energy, eliminating waste, conserving water, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution, planting native plants, caring for natural areas and supporting local food production.‚Äč

Our Mission

Our Mandate

Ontariogreen grew out of the work pioneered by Liz Benneian, the award-winning former president of a community environmental organization. At the request of teachers, Liz developed environmental science presentations that grew into a full suite of curriculum-based presentations for Grades Kindergarten to 8. Some high school programs, and programs for special needs students, are also available. 

Over the past 6 years, more than 60,000 students in 12 Ontario Regions have benefited from these programs.
