The Friends of the Rouge Watershed will lead 700 students and community volunteers in restoring 9 hectares along the Rouge River and its tributaries. This will help protect water quality in the river which flows into Lake Ontario.
Protecting and restoring the Great Lakes is part of the Ontario government’s plan to enhance quality of life for Ontario families and ensure a strong, green economy for future generations.
