Friends of the Rouge Watershed offers opportunities for Toronto, York and Durham high school students to work in co-op placements with FRW. FRW benefits from the enthusiasm, energy and fresh ideas the students bring to our work. The students benefit from practical skills development in areas such as:

  • forest, wildflower and wildlife ecology;
  • outdoor and environmental education;
  • watershed protection, planning and restoration;
  • office administration and word processing;
  • GIS mapping and data base management;
  • climate change, pollution and green energy alternatives;
  • goal setting, team work, communications;
  • fundraising, volunteer development and public relations.
