We've changed our Twitter handle! @CarolinianCan is now @carolinianzone. Our old handle definitely caused confusion (don't you really want to just type @caroliniancanada?), so we decided to switch it up and pick something new that still represents us to the core.

If you would like to send us a tweet, just enter @carolinianzone in your Twitter app and we'll see your message.

On April 18, hundreds of people from the London region and beyond gathered at the Western Fair Agriplex for Carolinian Canada's first ever Go Wild Grow Wild Expo. Some even came from as far as Windsor! All came for the promise of an outdoor expo like no other, bringing native plant nurseries, conservation authorities, and educational groups together with ecotourism companies, outdoor activity equipment vendors, and local food producers. If you love the outdoors, then there is something at Go Wild Grow Wild for you!
