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.
Look for TREA in October at the Phoenix Trail Race, where we are helping with waste diversion. We hope you can look at bringing your own containers to community events to avoid creating waste!
