Green Ontario

One of the most important environmental issues in the Great Lakes Lowland involves the Oakridges Moraine. This Web site, produced by Green Ontario, introduces students to this issue. It includes an excellent map as well as an explanation of the moraine and its features. Since the reading level may be challenging for some students, you might want to use this site as part of a reading and vocabulary exercise.

The Bruce Trail

The Bruce Trail Association is a voluntary organization formed to preserve the land along the Niagara Escarpment. It is an excellent example of citizenship in action as it demonstrates people working together to preserve the environment. At this Web site, students can view a map of the trail and photographs in the image gallery.
