January 2018 - We welcome you to be more involved with TREA this year!
TREA is taking special time now to map out the year 2018. This includes governance, special projects, presentations, special events and volunteer opportunities. Email info@trea.ca if you want to participate in this planning expected the last week of January. Or just send us your ideas that relate to reducing waste, reducing fossil fuels and increasing biking and walking opportunities on a community level.

During January, TREA will be distributing bike lights to commuters riding at night without a light. This is similar to what the City’s Cycling Advisory Committee took on as a project last year.  Also our first big education message this year will involve outreach on environmental issues with London’s multi-cultural communities. We look forward to talking to London newcomers and identifying volunteer opportunities.
