Climate Change Program

FRW has expanded our watershed focus to include "air-shed" issues such as climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, smog, sustainable transportation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy sources.  This successful project establishes a good foundation of communication tools, partner and community involvement and "Climate Change" initiatives.


Student planters


FRW appreciates our many partnerships with schools in Toronto, York and Durham Regions.

Each year, FRW involves approximately 25 schools and 2,500 students in our "Green Watershed" and "Clean Air" projects.  

FRW projects provide students with an opportunity to learn about the Rouge Park, watershed protection, and ecological restoration, through first hand experience.
