What's happening at the Clearview EcoPark?
In the spring of 2015 staff and students were on site and
planted over 1000 native plant and tree specimens to enrich the site for birds
and wildlife. A Forest Ecology Study was then conducted on site highlighting
exactly how the park space has great potential for the school, the community,
and the public to enjoy lifelong learning.
On September 12th and 13th of 2015,
the Nature League of Collingwood will be hosting the Green and Healthy Living Festival, which will feature 40 Georgian Triangle vendors, a silent auction, children’s
activities, a fashion show, speakers, refreshments and entertainment. Admission
is free and there will be a silent auction to support the park. Do not forget your e-waste as Habitat for
Humanity will be onsite with their electronic recycling truck.
