An environmentally literate person knows:

  • That the choices they make as humans and as consumers affect the environment,
  • How those choices can either help or harm the environment, and the earth’s ability to sustain human and other life, and
  • What they need to do—individually or as part of a community—to keep the environment healthy and sustain its resources, so that people can create and enjoy a good quality of life for themselves and their children.

Keeping the environment healthy promotes human health: clean air reduces the incidence of asthma and certain cancers, clean water prevents infectious diseases, and sustainable farming means more nutrient-rich soil and healthier food for everyone.

This section of the website is dedicated to providing opportunities and resources to be more involved in aspects that can maintain the Aux Sable Creek watershed – both the quantity and quality of the water and land that makes up the watershed. Some of these opportunities require funding.  In-kind services can also be provided for these projects.
