Cach'n in the Rouge

The event on June 8, 2012 was a big success! Everyone had a great time geocaching and we had great weather. Overall, we were able to bring together teams of people from a variety of local businesses and organizations, including those from financial institutions, environmental and laboratory services, as well as our new friends from the David Suzuki Foundation and Trees Ontario. Fun was had by all who participated in the geocaching activity and we're proud to have been able to help contribute to Camp Suzuki in the Rouge's goal of bringing over 1000 people into the Rouge.

Check out our geocaching pictures and video on AiMS website.

About the team

AiMS Environmental (est. 1993) combines over 50 years of collective experience and expertise in the fields of geo-environmental, chemical, and industrial engineering.

Team: Samantha Barrera-Corway, Nancy Wun, Amanda Brunet, Damian Khan

Who: AiMS Environmental is a Markham-based engineering firm that provides environmental testing and inspection services. Aims staff participating in Camp Suzuki will be reaching out to the company's diverse clients, ranging from laboratories and excavation companies to banks and life insurers.

Who: Team AiMS is interested in participating in Camp Suzuki in the Rouge because they feel they want to make an impact on a larger scale. While they are often involved in inspecting, testing, and remediating properties throughout the GTA, Camp Suzuki is a chance to provide another type of valuable environmental 'service' — generating awareness about the Rouge and supporting efforts to protect and preserve it by recognizing it as an urban National Park.

What: Team AiMS is planning to hold 'Cach'n the Rouge', a geo-caching scavenger hunt in the Rouge. They feel this type of large outdoor treasure hunt would be a perfect way to bring people into the Rouge, experience what it has to offer, and help promote the plan for the Rouge to be Canada's first urban National Park.
