Greater Victoria Green Team

The GreGVGT-logo-horizontalater Victoria Green Team has been busy at work throughout the Capital Region since August 2014. The Program Manager, Amanda Evans, believes that fostering a connection between people and nature is vital to the health and well-being of our planet, and plans to continue to motivate and encourage the community to get outside, get their hands dirty and restore habitat.
