Peel Region Group

 

Sierra Club Peel group is a group of concerned citizens who volunteer their time to carry out environmental campaigns and conservation projects within the Peel Region. The group's aim is to educate and empower the residents of Peel to be defenders and responsible stewards of the natural environment. The Peel group has three goals:

  • To slow urban sprawl and encourage sustainable urban centres.
  • To take cars and trucks off the road by providing people with innovative rapid transit systems and pathways that make Peel more bikeable and walkable.
  • To protect and enhance natural areas such as the Credit Valley and Woodlands, the Greenbelt in northwest Brampton, and the Credit River, Etobicoke Creek and Humber River watersheds in Peel.
