With three focus areas for change—trees, water, and climate—the Elora Environment Centre nurtures community sustainability from the ground up. Check out our almost 25 year history of innovation and delivering change.
A not-for-profit, charitable organization, the Elora Environment Centre relies on our over twenty dedicated volunteers, four summer students, and five-person board of directors to drive change-making in our community. We are a dynamic group who are passionate about pushing the envelope for environmentally sustainable communities—and we welcome you make a difference with us!
