Protect Our Water and Environmental Resources

Projects

P.O.W.E.R. is currently involved with two major projects. These include our ‘vectorIAS‘ invasive alien species initiative, and in partnership with the Town of Halton Hills, our annual EcoFilm Fest.

 

Past projects include:

The Halton-Peel BioDiversity Network (HPBDN). Originally a P.O.W.E.R. initiative, the network continues today as a Biodiversity Views Ontario program. Check them out on facebook today!
