2013 Campaign Highlights

20,000+ views of new Save Wolf Lake video.  Wolf Lake area claims begin to expire for the first time in 14 years, including most Matagamassi Lake claims and some within the old growth.

Toronto Star editorial supports Earthroots' stance against old growth logging in Temagami.  Earthroots brings together a coalition of conservation organizations and local camps to oppose the proposed logging plan for Temagami.
Supreme Court to hear Grassy Narrows' challenge over logging.  2,000+ people take action online in opposition to Ontario's new plan to log Grassy Narrows.  
400 people attend Tools for Change workshops to develop their skills within the movement for social and environmental justice.
Over 250 people attend the first Managing Large-Scale Fill Symposium.  The threats that commercial fill poses to southern Ontario's greenspaces and drinking water are brought into the public eye.
We are coming to the end of yet another busy year at Earthroots - together with our partners we made some significant achievements.  Our steadfast campaigning wouldn't have been possible without the help of dedicated supporters and like you!  Thank you for making this year a great success.
