Community-based environmental groups are invited to participate in the fifth Sharing Experiences Workshop, held on March 5 at Puslinch Community Centre in Aberfoyle. This workshop is organized by local conservation authorities and environmental organizations, and features a keynote address by Gord Miller, former Environmental Commissioner of Ontario.

Workshop organizers seek input from groups or individuals interested in presenting. The organizing committee is working to ensure different topics are selected from year to year. Previous topics include:

  • marketing and communications
