Together with our partners, Earthroots made some significant achievements this year.
Here a few highlights from our list of accomplishments in 2012!
Earthroots' campaign was essential in stopping the removal of 'forest reserve' status from Wolf Lake, the largest ancient red pine forest in the world.
Wild Rivers - KI
Earthroots helped get 23,000 sq km of KI Homeland withdrawn from all mining activity - this roadless area in the boreal forest is three times the size of Algonquin Park.
Earthroots' continued support of Grassy Narrows helped keep industrial logging out of their traditional territory for a fourth year.
Oak Ridges Moraine
Earthroots played a key role in bringing together councillors from Toronto and across the Moraine to begin drafting guidelines for best practices regarding commercial fill - our water sources must be protected from contaminated soil.
