Community in April, 1995.
FRW and 10,000 Trees for the Rouge Valley share shovels, pumps, hose, expertise and the best sources for trees and supplies. Sometimes, we jointly order supplies to obtain volume discounts.
In 2000, the Rouge Park selected FRW to be the lead group in the Barkey Creek restoration project which also involves Ontario Streams, SRVS and 10,000 Trees. The Barkey Creek project is the restoration of a riparian corridor of 120 metres width along a 2 km stream section that was previously farmed. FRW has responsibility for the riparian tree plantings (20,000 trees), Ontario streams is doing aquatic monitoring and wetland enhancement work, SRVS is doing wildlife monitoring and bird boxes, and 10,000 Trees is doing an adjacent tableland planting.
In 2003, FRW planted the west half of a 10 hectare site at Beare Road and Finch Avenue and 10,000 Trees planted the east half.
FRW has partnered with many community groups, including:
