"Behind Earthroots there are individuals who wear their passions on their sleeve, who are dedicated to a cause, and work tirelessly to get the message out. I thank all those who have made it happen over the years and am proud of the ongoing campaigns that inspire others to take action."
- Hap Wilson
Earthroots is a grassroots conservation organization dedicated to the protection of Ontario’s wilderness, wildlife and watersheds, through research, education and action.
We have been on the front lines of wilderness conservation since 1986, when our predecessor organization, the Temagami Wilderness Society (TWS) was formed. The TWS was created to fight for the preservation of rare old growth white and red pine forests in the Temagami region of northern Ontario. After campaign success in the Temagami region, the organization changed its name to Earthroots in 1991, in order to broaden the organization’s campaign focus beyond the Temagami issue.
Earthroots consists of two separate organizations: Earthroots Fund, a charitable organization (registration #135165140 RR0001) that engages in public education and research, and Earthroots Coalition, a non-profit organization that engages in advocacy and action. Earthroots’ campaigns focus on achieving meaningful protection for Ontario’s threatened wilderness areas and wildlife species. Earthroots acts on behalf of 12,000 supporters across the country.
Earthroots is a strong advocate and agitator for wilderness preservation in Ontario, combining grassroots campaign strategies with effective research and educational programs. Since 1986, Earthroots has used its grassroots expertise to organize, educate and mobilize the public, conduct successful media events, carry out wilderness research projects and ensure proper forest management planning.
We empower thousands of Canadians each year to advocate for better environmental protection and achieve conservation victories!
