Are you interested in climate change and other global environmental issues? The Nith Valley EcoBoosters is a not-for-profit, politically non-partisan volunteer group committed to achieving and supporting a long-term healthy environment in Wilmot and Wellesley Townships through education, action and collaboration.
Help us make a difference in our community by getting involved and taking action on one or more local environmental concerns. There is no fee to join. Nith Valley EcoBoosters is funded by donations, fundraising efforts, and grants.
We meet on the 4th Wednesday of most months and our next meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on May 25th . Please contact us via e-mail ([email protected]) if you would like to participate in this "Zoom" meeting and we will provide you with more details. You are also welcome to participate in our Policy and/or Education committees - more details are available if you would like them.

Note: Politically non-partisan means that the Nith Valley EcoBoosters (NVEB) does not endorse or support specific political parties, politicians or candidates. This does not preclude NVEB from engaging in education and/or advocacy directed toward political or other issues related to the environment.
