EcoSpark: Sparking Environmental Action Since 1996

EcoSpark empowers people to take an active role in protecting and sustaining nature. We do this by giving people the tools to monitor their environment, educate their community and influence positive change. We are a leader in empowering individuals and communities to actively protect and maintain a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations.

EcoSpark was formed as Citizens’ Environment Watch in 1996 by prominent scientists, including Dr. Ursula Franklin, in response to provincial budget cuts in environmental monitoring. Since 1996, we have connected people with their environment through fun, entry level, easy-to-access activities. They are then empowered with the knowledge and skills to become environmental stewards.

EcoSpark’s Milestones


In 2017, EcoSpark released its 5-year Strategic Plan. This renewed strategic plan builds upon our organizational strengths and achievements including our face-to-face environmental engagement and our science-based systems approach. We will continue to operate in a trusted, credible and reliable manner with educators, scientists, planners and other like-minded individuals.
