We provide teams with an opportunity to learn about the newly created Rouge National Urban Park and natural conservation at large, watershed protection, and ecological restoration through hands on programming. We invite groups to help us with our ecological restoration efforts through the planting of native trees, shrubs and wildflowers. This is a great day for you to get out of the office and in to the natural environment, and maybe getting a little muddy along the way!
You'll be in good company - take a peek at some of the companies that have planted with us in the past!
We have several planting sites located in close proximity to Rouge National Urban Park, in both Scarborough and Markham. The exact drop off location will be confirmed at a later date, once we have all of the numbers in.
Typical schedule (*half-day itineraries also welcome):
9:30AM – Arrive at planting site
9:45AM – Intro to Rouge ecology; restoration prep (mulching etc.)
10:15AM – Restoration activity (planting, mulching etc.)

As a small, grassroots charity with limited resources, we incur the upfront costs of supplies, but with the support of our corporate partners, we have been able to sustain our programming since 1991 and we hope to continue this for many years to come.
With that, we gladly accept charitable donations that will be used towards our ecological restoration and education work. We suggest $30-40 per individual to help cover the cost of the supplies, or welcome any amount that your group can give. Donations can be made in person by cheque and/or cash, or online.
