The TILTreks program benefits and strengthens our River community by providing free environmental programming and recreational opportunities, promoting healthy living through interaction with the outdoors, and engaging young people in conservation through education and technology.

In 2019, the Thousand Islands Land Trust received a $5,000 grant from the RBC Foundation for our Treks and KidsTreks programs. With this partnership and support, TILT is able to expand our free education and recreation offerings. This funding will allow us to broaden our annual programs by bringing in new technology, attracting more people to our programs and engaging a younger demographic to help drive a deeper connection to nature. The integration of technology will enhance the learning experience by introducing more citizen science apps like iMapInvasives and iNaturalist, giving young people the ability to contribute meaningfully to conservation. These tools will also make it easier to interact, educate and communicate with our audiences by establishing common ground among all ages.

We are grateful to the RBC Foundation for their support of the TILTreks program, allowing us to take the program to the next level and further help connect young people to nature.
