Subject: Ontario Environmental Directory & Guide -- now online

WINDOW TO A HEALTHIER WORLD

Individuals interested in a greener, healthier environment
now have an easy way to connect with the province's many
environmental groups and organizations.

The Ontario Environment Network announced today the
launch of a comprehensive guide to over 700 groups,
organizations and websites across the province. Available
on-line or in print, the new Ontario Environmental
Directory is the starting point for anyone interested in
research, communication and action on environmental
issues.

"Whatever your interest -- from clean air to toxic waste,
from wilderness to urban transport, from green living to
green economics -- this directory will be of interest to you",
says the Coordinator of the Ontario Environment Network,
Phillip Penna. "It makes it easy to find groups and
resources in your town, region or area of concern".

The directory is unique because it brings together the many
different opinions and voices on environmental issues in
one place, says Peter Blanchard, the directory's designer.

"We want people to participate in Ontario's vibrant
environmental community. Whether you're a parent or
student, businessperson or politician, this directory is for
you. It's for anyone and everyone interested in a greener,
healthier world," he says.

The directory was made possible by a generous
contribution from the Helen McCrea Peacock Foundation.

A print edition is available for order on the web or by
