The Elmvale Foundation is a non-profit research organization providing environmental science education.

Environmental Education

Dr. Shotyk's studies have shown that the pristine groundwaters of the Elmvale area (Springwater and Tiny Townships) are comparable in many respects to the cleanest layers of ancient arctic ice. The remarkable purification of natural waters as illustrated by these artesian flows presents a tremendous opportunity for environmental science education.

The Elmvale Story

The thinking, motivation and planning associated with the Annual Water Festival and the work of the Elmvale Foundation has been captured in an eBook called The Elmvale Story. The book is freely available to download in Adobe pdf format.
