Posted on Updated on

We are starting 2017 strong, with small actions with huge impact! We are so happy to offer new and interesting activities for our youth stewards. Opportunities to volunteer, learn from the experts and get involved in skill building activities.

Starting with our Bee Box Building in Collaboration with Conservation Halton on

Tuesday, January 24th 2017

from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

at the Church of the Incarnation (1240 Old Lane Abbey, Oakville, Ontario).

Native pollinators have a key role in local ecosystems! You can help them by enhancing their habitat and providing nesting options for them. Join us and learn how to build and place solitary bee boxes (no experience or equipment necessary). You will be able to take a bee box home to be placed in an outdoor location and help native pollinators in Oakville.

Registrations online here or at programs@oakvillegreen.org.

As well, we are thrilled to provide Job Shadowing Opportunities with the Town of Oakville. Students will have the chance to accompany one of the Town arborists on a full day of work, learning on the ground and from the experts about what the Town is doing to protect and enhance Oakville’s natural lands.  This is a full day opportunity during PA days this semester, pre-registration is required at programs@oakvillegreen.org.
