We have a strong reputation in the areas of community engagement, education, citizen science, facilitation and collaboration. To date, we have directly worked with over 80,000 people from across Southern Ontario in over 20 watersheds.

What People Are Saying

"Taking part in an actual science field study with specific protocols and on-site expert is one of the richest experiences for my students. They remember and reflect upon it all year. It gives context to much of what we talk about."

— Dale Davis, Grade 8 Teacher, re. Changing Currents

"I have nothing but praise for how the program is run. You make it easier to bring field science into the classroom."

— John Shaughnessy, Grade 11 Biology Teacher, re. Changing Currents

"Both workshops offered invaluable outdoor experience...Prior to attending these workshops, I had never attended an environmentally-focused workshop and truly appreciated having done so."

— Varsha Patel, High School Science Teacher, re. Nature Academy
