Welcome to ReWilding Lake Simcoe, a collaborative initiative to advance community action to help Lake Simcoe while enriching people’s lives at the same time. We are in startup mode right now and will evolve over the next 3 years. Please mouse over our “business plan” to find out more. Check back in the spring to see how we’re evolving.

For any enquiries, please email Hilary Van Welter at ascentia@rogers.com.


ReWilding brings together people and communities, government, institutions of higher education, and not for profit organizations. All partners are part of an Advisory Panel and will play a role in one or more of the ReWilding Labs on Design, Measurement and Practice, and Citizen Engagement. These relationships are the roots of ReWilding.
