Rouge Valley Naturalists

Town: Scarborough

Ontario Nature Region: Lake Ontario North

The Rouge Valley Naturalists is a not-for-profit organization that has been dedicated to protecting, preserving and restoring the natural heritage of the Rouge Valley. We educate and inform residents, individuals, community groups and school groups about environmental issues relating to air, land and water. Also, we promote and execute environmental protection initiatives such as waste reduction, habitat protection, and restoration/land use planning that will help to achieve a sustainable and healthy society.

Founded in 1994, The Rouge Valley Naturalists began with a small volunteer base whose love for the Rouge Valley prompted a noble response that continues to this day. Since 1994, RVN has carried out curriculum-based educational programs for elementary and high school students, promoting physical and recreational activities for people of all ages and abilities. The facets of these programs combine guided hikes of the surrounding area with the Ontario curriculum goals for each respective topic.

Similarly, RVN spearheads community-based learning opportunities: By providing workshops, information sessions and other programs to the community, these projects reinforce community involvement and foster partnerships. In addition, over the past 18 years of annual restoration events, RVN has contributed to enhancing and protecting human and ecosystem health.
