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.
This past year has been busy for TREA in reaching the community. Key projects in 2018 have included:
-TREA facilitating environmental workshops with newcomers (primarily in the Spanish community).
-Conducting surveys/discussion on waste reduction barriers and solutions door-to-door in the Woodfield neighbourhood (this summer) and Kensington Village (this fall).
-Promoting local food and energy conservation topics, building a pollination garden.
-Helping with compost and recycling waste managing at summer festival events at various city parks.
-Supporting CAN-Bike safe cycling outreach.
-Contributing to civic issues.
-Delivering a Keeping it Natural fashion show and,
-Supporting the objectives of London’s larger urban agricultural community.

Thank you for attending our February workshop on Saving Water in your home.
Next workshop is Emergency Preparedness on Wednesday, March 20, 7-9pm at Grosvenor Lodge, 1017 Western Road. The best way to cope with a natural disaster is by having a plan before it strikes. There’s no “one-size-fits-all” solution to being prepared. Join us for a discussion on innovative ways to take action should the need arise.
This is followed by an energy conservation workshop on Wednesday, April 24, 7-9pm at Grosvenor Lodge, 1017 Western Road.

Expect some non-traditional insights on ways to reduce household energy usage to save you money and help our planet.
