GreenUP has been offering opportunities for learning, skill-building, and environmental action in our community for over 25 years.
For children growing up in this region, the GreenUP Ecology Park has been a site of wonder, learning, and environmental immersion.
In 2017, GreenUP began its first capital campaign, the Growing Ecology Park five-year investment campaign.
In 2018, with generous community support and donations, we enhanced facilities at GreenUP Ecology Park by building a new Children’s Education Shelter. This new building will help to strengthen our capacity to offer high quality outdoor programming, maximize the impact this unique facility can have on the health of children, and increase accessibility to enable a greater number of children to use the park. In 2019, we completed installation of a new low-water irrigation system in our Native Plant and Tree Nursery.
Our goals for 2020 are as follows:
Build a permanent, barrier-free washroom
Install accessible, permeable pathways that will connect Ecology Park with the Great Trail (formerly known as the Trans Canada Trail)
Add a permeable foundation to the newly constructed Children’s Education Shelter to make this space accessible for everyone
Install solar panels on the Children’s Education Shelter
You can help us reach our goals; you can donate now securely online.
