Click on the image above to see a pdf version of the press release. The largest and most visible portion of the funding will go towards rebuilding the viewing platform (outdoor classroom) at the pond. The old one was removed last fall, and the new one will be completed early this spring.
Another significant portion of this funding will be used to provide subsidies for students participating in the environmental education programs run by the Humber Arboretum at the park. This will be the fourth year these programs have been offered here. Last year, CCFEW secured a significant infusion of third party funding, which really helped to prove the viability of the programs at this site.
