Oakvillegreen celebrates its 20 th Anniversary this year!

Oakvillegreen is celebrating its 20 year Anniversary!

20 years ago, Oakvillegreen was founded by a passionate group of Oakville residents who
worked to protect greenspace against the threat of new development in North Oakville. They
succeeded in protecting hundreds of acres and Oakville’s Natural Heritage System (NHS) was
born.

Since then, Oakvillegreen’s members, volunteers and partners have acted as a proud, collective voice for Oakville’s environment:

  •  planting over 35,000 trees in partnership with the Town of Oakville
  • connecting 25,000 youth with nature at Oakville schools
  • engaging thousands of volunteers
  • advocating for the protection of greenspace, the strengthening of Oakville’s private tree protection bylaw, and the protection of many heritage trees

Let’s take more positive action together! There are LOTS of ways to help:

  • Sign up to receive Oakvillegreen’s e-newsletter for updates on events and local action
    [click here to sign up]
  • Volunteer and take part in an Oakvillegreen stewardship or planting event
  • [DONATE TODAY] to help us continue the impact
  • Make a lasting change by sponsoring an entire “Depave” or Community Treeplanting event
  • Host a fundraiser with your community, company or school group and we will share the group’s pictures and story with our community.
