Community Tree Plant – York

May 6th, 2017

Play a part in “greening” your local community by joining Forests Ontario, Ontario Wood, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, and the Regional Municipality of York on Saturday, May 6th for the 9th Annual Community Planting Weekend. This half-day planting event brings together families, friends and community members for a chance to contribute to a meaningful project that offers environmental benefits for all Ontarians! Participation helps build awareness around the importance of trees, which clean our air, improve our water, provide wildlife habitat, contribute to human health and provide a buffer against the effects of climate change.

What to Bring: To participate in this family-friendly event, please dress for the weather, bring a shovel, gardening gloves and lots of energy!

What We Will Bring: We will supply the rest – the trees, forestry specialists, mulch and snacks.

Parking: Limited parking will be available at the Mt. Albert Water Treatment Plant. Please do not block the roadway.

Space is limited and pre-registration is appreciated.
