FRW Patron MPP Gerry Phillips with
Jim Robb by Little Rouge River.

FRW appreciates the support of the Ontario Government:

Grants from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources' Community Fish and Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program (CFWIP) and the Ecological Land Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAP) help FRW to buy the trees and supplies necessary to restore habitat on priority sites in the Rouge Park.

ELAP grants have helped the Rouge Park to acquire ecologically significant lands.

Ontario Trillium Foundation funding assists FRW with our Green Watershed and Clean Air project. With Trillium funding, FRW has been able to hire a University of Toronto graduate (Tammy Chung) to provide information and activities for schools and students which address:

  • smog, greenhouse gases, global warming and climate extremes;
  • energy conservation, green energy sources and renewable energy strategies.

MPP's Alvin Curling (Scarborough Rouge River) and Gerry Phillips (Scarborough Agincourt) are  FRW patrons.
