Riversides -- Where Water Quality Begins

5 Things You Can Do For Your River - Green Communities Canada Partnership

In 2009, RiverSides entered into a key partnership with Green Communities Canada, a national network of community-based environmental organizations. The program involves training of local environmental organizations, public outreach, demonstration sites, and building stakeholder support in each community.

The purpose of this partnership is to develop and implement run-off pollution prevention program based on RiverSides' 5 Things program for organizations who are members of Green Communities Canada. In it's first stage, stormwater programming will be implemented in 5 community organizations in Ontario and this includes:  Green Venture (Hamilton), REEP (Waterloo), Greening Nipissing (North Bay), Durham Sustain-Ability (Durham Region), Environment Network (Collingwood), Rideau Environment Action League (Smiths Falls).

This project has been made possible thanks to Ontario Trillium Foundation.
