In our efforts to come together in a common cause of caring for our environment and health, we host a number of annual events that are open to the public. Your participation—as a participant or as a volunteer—not only supports our ongoing work, but is a wonderful opportunity to get together with friends and co-workers, and connect with other concerned residents, to defend clean water, a safe climate and healthy communities.

Join us for a free photo exhibit of the North of Long Tail WHEN: June 5 - July 4, 2021 WHERE: Artscape Wychwood Barns, 76 Wychwood Avenue, Toronto This new documentary photography exhibition showcases Canadians’ deep personal connections with Lake Erie and highlights why the lake needs to be protected. North of Long Tail, a collaboration between Environmental Defence and documentary photographer Colin Boyd Shafer, contains 20 stories from the north side of the lake — from Essex County all the way to Niagara Region. Part art, part call to action, the exhibition seeks to illustrate what could be lost if the Great Lakes are left unprotected. The stories include a fifth-generation Canadian whose family escaped slavery in the U.S., a Pelee Island theatre owner, a firefighter from Port Stanley, a brewery owner in Port Colborne, a commercial fisherman in Wheatley, a refugee from Syria, and an associate professor from the University of Waterloo. This photo exhibit will be held outdoors at Wychwood Barns and will follow strict COVID-19 safety regulations. It is free of charge to attend. Artscape is a wheelchair-accessible location.
