Earth Citizenship

Students mulching garden beds

The role of the government will be investigated while students explore the Seaton Trail or the Rouge Park.  The focus of the exploration will be on the concept of citizenship and how the area has been used in the past and how it is used today.  The many levels of government and its services provided to citizens will be examined. Developments such as Highway 407 or the Rouge National Park will be a visual reminder to students of human impact on wetlands, wildlife and plant life.  We hope students leave Hillside with the drive to be a more ecologically sensitive citizen.
