City Nature Challenge, Waterloo Region
Which city has the most nature? The City Nature Challenge 2018 will help us find out! More than 60 cities in 17 countries around the world are asking people to explore nature in their urban areas and document the species they find. Help Waterloo Region show the world how biodiverse our region is by making as many observations of as many species as possible April 27-30! Any observation of plants and animals and fungi you find in Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge, Wellesley, Woolwich, Wilmot, and North Dumfries will count! Building on the success of the first City Nature Challenge in 2016 between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and the 2017 City Nature Challenge across 16 US cities, the event founders, the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, have expanded the event around the world. http://raresites.org/2018/03/city-nature-challenge-2018-waterloo-region/

What we're about

Public Group

Cambridge City Green is a small group of volunteers that leverage dozens of other groups and thousands of individuals in Cambridge, Ontario to "be the change they want to see in the world." CCG is composed of volunteers who develop, host, and support community environmental projects like tree planting through the Cambridge Stewardship project, litter clean ups through the Community Clean Up Day, and an annual event (workshops, movie nights, etc.). CCG has been around since 1993 and is an action-oriented subcommittee of the Cambridge Environmental Advisory Committee of Council. Cambridge City Green initiated the Cambridge Stewardship project in 2007 with seven founding partners and one planting site. In the past 9 years (2007-2015), over 75+ groups and 3,000+ volunteers have planted over 10,000 indigenous trees, shrubs, and wildflowers at 23 sites during 81 planting events across Cambridge. Every year 3000-5000 individual volunteers and 50+ groups help take care of litter through the Cambridge Community Clean Up. Each year we plan an annual event, invite keynote speakers and local organizations doing interesting things, with an objective of positive change (rather than sitting around and complaining and blaming) and what YOU can do tommorrow. If you want to join Cambridge City Green in planning community projects, or starting new ones, or just want to participate in one of the events let us know.
