The stormwater model is a fun, interactive tool to illustrate, with real water, how pollutants get into our waterways from houses, roads, farmland, and industry. Better yet, it shows the steps we can take to prevent water pollution.
Those wishing to borrow the water model, including a demonstration to your group or classroom, can contact Susan Bryant at 519 669-5321 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Yellow Fish Road Program
The Yellow Fish Road program educates the public about the impacts of pollution entering urban storm drains. In most communities, water entering storm drains goes directly into local rivers, streams and lakes untreated. Stormwater pollution can harm fish and wildlife, as well as reduce water quality for human use. Yellow Fish Road kits are available for volunteers to paint “yellow fish” symbols and the words “Rainwater Only” beside storm drains and distribute fish shaped brochures to nearby households. These activities remind people to properly use and dispose of hazardous household chemicals, rather than allowing these to enter curbside storm drains.
Those wishing to borrow Yellow Fish Road kits can contact Ann Roberts at 519 669-1647 x 7027 or email@example.com
Students for Shade Interpretative Hike and Potting Seedlings
Grades 4 to 6 students have the opportunity to spend a half day at the TWEEC tree nursery potting up seedlings and taking part in an interpretative walk led by TWEEC members. The walk and talk focuses on water, tree identification and invasive species in Woolwich.
Seedlings for Seniors is a recent addition to the program. We're enlisting seniors in Woolwich to plant and care for trays of seedlings over the winter months to be transplanted into pots at our nursery in May.
Those involved with seniors programs wishing to grow seedlings are invited to contact:
