Welcome to TREA - Thames Region Ecological Association

TREA’s main goal is to educate its members and community to protect the environment, stay informed and take personal action. We also have an entrepreneurial streak given that TREA encourages citizen participation and innovative projects from and for the community.

TREA’s Summer How-To Workshops: Take Personal Action on Climate Change

TREA is offering several how-to workshops on topics that are influencing our current interests and behaviours given the COVID-19 pandemic. These start mid-July, see below.

 

Please note, you have to pre-register to attend demonstrations meaning limited registrations OR everyone can join the Zoom meeting. Limited attendance is due to Ontario’s special events gathering guidelines and social distancing to 3 of our workshops.

 

Note, recordings of the workshop series will be shared on YouTube so you will still be able to tune in after at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWap7MN1UPAX_w9f8_qOC9Q

 

This workshop series is made attainable thanks to the support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
