What is Oakvillegreen?

Oakvillegreen Conservation Association (OCA) is a non-profit advocacy environmental organization with a 15-year history of protecting and enhancing nature and promoting a green Oakville. OCA has achieved success in advocating for natural heritage system planning, urban forest protection, a natural trails plan and against an incinerator, cosmetic pesticide use and new developments in natural areas. We have engaged thousands of volunteers in enhancing local parks and green spaces and have planted over 18,000 trees and shrubs. In collaboration with municipal, corporate and community partners, OCA volunteers plant native trees and shrubs and steward over 50 sites in Oakville and, new in 2015, a demonstration pollinator garden. We connect diverse audiences in the community to nature’s diversity through presentations, hands-on stewardship events, workshops, guided hikes and cycle tours. Our free, grade K to 12, curriculum-connected school programs, are delivered to thousands of students each year. 

We strive to create a LIVING Oakville, with restored nature and a community connected to nature!
