Our commitment to you:
- Exceptional – Our aim, as always, is to curate a unique local wild green experience for the Carolinian Zone, that 25% of Canadians call home
- Targeted – Our proven communications strategy will help you reach new supporters and clients and deepen engagement at home through target marketing to the 70% of Ontarians who care about the environment and local green, active people.

- Savings – When you stay with us in 2020, you will receive a special discount for Expo 2021

So what’s next? We’ll be launching soon, but we can’t do this without you.
We need your help!
- Stay with us. We will automatically enroll you in My Wild Green Home 2020 with your Expo 2020 fee or contribution PLUS provide special discounts for Expo 2021. However, we understand if you need to leave the community at any time.
- Share your ideas and feedback (even it is just a thumbs up!) so we can create this unique, customized experience together.
- Share the gift of time – We’re aiming for a June launch but we need to be flexible to adjust to new challenges as they arise. We are working hard on the details and will share updates and opportunities as they are confirmed. We greatly appreciate your patience.
